I need help regaining my independence

We can help you to build your confidence and skills after an illness or a fall, and help you to maximise your independence and regain your skills.

Reablement is a short and intensive service designed to help people progress their recovery after illness or disability by learning or re-learning the skills necessary for daily living whist promoting maximum independence.

This service is generally provided for a very short period. Service users often meet their goals within the first 4 weeks with an optional futher 2 weeks if their aims and goals are achievable. 

Eligibility and cost

You would be suitable for the reablement service if you:

  • live in Hillingdon
  • are over 18 years old
  • have the potential to live independently
  • have not had reablement more than twice in a 12 month period

Reablement service is non-chargeable up to 6 weeks.

How do I arrange reablement?

If you are currently in hospital you will normally be referred to reablement by the hospital discharge team.

If you are at home, a direct referral can be made to the social care team by yourself or someone acting on your behalf with your full consent.
