Abstract

<p>English local authorities with responsibility for adult services are increasingly developing short-term, specialist home care re-ablement services. Re-ablement is often 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.</p> <a>A summary of this report can be downloaded at <a href= http://www.york.ac.uk/inst/spru/pubs/rworks/jan2010-1.pdf />SPRU, University of York<a></p><p>The full report can be downloaded here at <a href= http://www.york.ac.uk/inst/spru/research/pdf/ReablementOrg.pdf>SPRU, University of York</a></p>
