Reablement Care

On discharge from hospital it may be decided that a patient would benefit from temporary support to help them get back to normal and stay as independent as possible. This is called NHS Intermediate Care, reablement or aftercare, and it’s free for up to six weeks.

This temporary care will be arranged by the hospital social work team before you are discharged and will be outlined in your discharge plan. It can happen in your own home, in a care home or in hospital.
