Adult Social Care Reablement in a Residential Setting AS1 (24/25)

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Adults Services (Cllr Amanda Jupp)

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

Reablement bed-based services are currently provided within four residential care services across the county.   The services provide care, support and reablement for people being discharged from hospital who are not initially able to return home.  Through the provision of occupational therapy support and support from the residential service to work towards reablement goals and relearn skills customers can have an opportunity to work towards moving home where possible after their stay in the service.

 

In March 2023 three of the current contracts were directly awarded OKD59 22/23 for a one-year period which will cease on 31 March 2024. The Council is reviewing these services to consider the future for the service provision, considering customer outcomes, and financial and non-financial benefits. Upon completion of the review the Cabinet Member for Adults Services will be asked for a decision regarding future commissioning.
