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, which is 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, you can complete our online self assessment form. This can be completed by yourself or by someone acting on your behalf (with your full consent).
