Help after a fall - reablement

Sometimes, after a fall, injury or illness you need some help to look after yourself – known as re-ablement. This helps you live independently and do things for yourself. 

We can help you to relearn lost skills and get your confidence back. We aim to get you back to doing day-to-day things for yourself, and being as independent as possible.

We will work with you to find out what your needs are and what is causing you the most difficulty. 

If necessary, we can then put together a plan on the care and support that you will need. 

This will help you stay in your own home for as long as possible.

You will usually be referred directly by the ambulance service following your fall or your GP, but you can ring on 0300 300 8303.
