Age needs one voice. Now it has:
Age Cymru is the new force combining Age Concern Cymru and
Help the Aged in Wales. Age Cymru is a member of the Age UK family.
The Welsh Reablement Alliance is an umbrella organisation for professional associations, voluntary sector partners and care providers who provide reablement services in Wales.
We believe that by speaking with a united voice on reablement, we can give a clear indication of what is needed to improve reablement provision.
The Alliance is comprised of:
Royal Voluntary Service
The College of Occupational Therapists
The Stroke Association In Wales
The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy
Care & Repair Cymru
MS Society Cymru
The Carers Trust
United Kingdom Home Care Association
At heart, reablement is about helping people to do things for themselves to maximise their ability to live life as independently as possible.
It’s about supporting the whole person – addressing their physical, social and emotional needs.
It’s an outcome-focused, personalised approach, whereby the person using the service sets their own goals and is supported by a reablement team to achieve them over a limited period.
It focuses on what people can do, rather than what they can’t, and aims to reduce or minimise the need for ongoing support after reablement.
