English local authorities with responsibility for adult services are increasingly developing short-term, specialist home care-based re-ablement services. Reablement can be described as an ‘approach’ or a ‘philosophy’ within home care services - one which aims to help people ‘do things for themselves’, rather than ‘having things done for them’. Home care re-ablement services provide personal care, help with activities of daily living and other practical tasks for a time-limited period, in such a way as to enable users to develop both the confidence and practical skills to carry out these activities themselves.
