Some work with a very wide range of people whereas others focus on a specific client group.  Despite these differences, what all reablement services have in common is a shared ethos of working proactively with people with health, care and support needs over a defined period of time, to achieve goals set by the person and the reablement team together, with the overall aim of maximizing the person’s independence, choice and quality of life, and reducing their need for support in the future.
