Summary

This is a two-part measure which reflects both the effectiveness of reablement services (part 1), and the coverage of the service (part 2).

2B(1) is the proportion of older people (aged 65 and over) who were discharged from acute or community hospitals to their own home or to a residential or nursing care home or extra care housing for rehabilitation in the period 1 October 2018 - 31 December 2018, with a clear intention that they will move on/back to their own home (including a place in extra care housing or an adult placement scheme setting), who are at home or in extra care housing or an adult placement scheme setting 91 days after the date of their discharge from hospital.

2B(2) is the proportion of older people (aged 65 and over) who were discharged from hospitals in England in the period 1 October 2018 - 31 December 2018, who were discharged to their own home or to a residential or nursing care home or extra care housing for rehabilitation, with a clear intention that they will move on/back to their own home (including a place in extra care housing or an adult placement scheme setting).

Reablement seeks to support people and maximise their level of independence, in order to minimise their need for ongoing support and dependence on public services. Remaining living at home 91 days following discharge is the key outcome for many people using reablement services.
