Summary

The proportion of older people (aged 65 and over), expressed as a percentage, who, after a period of reablement/rehabilitation, maintain their independence by remaining or returning to their home or previous residence 91 days after leaving hospital.

This indicator measures the benefit to individuals from reablement, intermediate care and rehabilitation following a hospital episode, by determining whether an individual remains living at home 91 days following discharge. This is seen as a key outcome for many people using reablement services.

As of February 2021, please refer to the data tables published as part of the Adult Social Care Outcomes Framework (ASCOF) by NHS Digital. This publication is released on an annual basis.
