Reablement is a free service that helps people learn or re-learn the skills necessary for daily living. These skills may have been lost or reduced through deterioration in health and / or increased support needs. Learn about the process and ethos behind reablement in this short course.
This course is intended for all staff who work with or have contact with vulnerable adults.
Although this course forms part of an induction programme for new starters, it is also intended for all people who want to improve their knowledge and continue their professional development.
Over two modules, you'll learn all the basics about reablement, why it exists, what the aim is of reablement and who might be helped through reablement. You'll also learn how an individual's progress is monitored and assessed, and how to measure whether reablement has been a success.
You will automatically get a course certificate on course completion - with your name, the CPD hours, the date and learning objectives. The course contains additional resource materials, useful links and a refresher guide.
