This ground-breaking text book introduces the theoretical underpinnings and practical considerations of the growing area reablement. With contributions from a number of professions including occupational therapy, nursing and social work this book encourages and supports collaborative working. It also offers service user, carer and support worker perspectives, in order to offer a rounded introduction to effective reablement practices.

Reablement Services in Health and Social Care develops the knowledge and understanding of students in this field on a wide range of courses – from nursing and occupational therapy to social work, physiotherapy and beyond. It may also appeal to support staff and associated professionals already working in reablement services and associated fields of enquiry.
