Mary Jamal Head of Disability and Intermediate Care

2 Before Reablement… Background Contracts with eight external providers
An in house home care service specialising in users with dementia A small rapid response and enabling service delivered by an external agency (in operation since 2004) Monitoring All the contracts monitored with the exception of the home care team activity Based on a small sample size activity from the rapid response agency, there was evidence of 56% of clients had their home care hours reduced and 78% of clients discharged had no on going home care or a reduced package Budget spend Home Care budget was around 17% of the budget for Islington Adult Social Services Home care spend increased by 7% from the financial years 2005/6 (from 11.9 million to 12.7 million) Was predicted to increase by 4% 2006/7 (from 12.7 million to 13.2 million)

3 Why set up a Reablement service?
Fit with government policy The four key objectives of the White Paper ‘Our Health, Our Care, Our Say’: better prevention with earlier intervention more choice tackle inequality & improved access to community services people with long-term conditions supported to manage their conditions The National Service Framework for Older People: Standard 3 Intermediate Care: “prevent unnecessary acute hospital admissions, support timely discharge and maximise independent living” Standard 8 The promotion of healthy and active life in older age. 2 out of 3 English Councils only deliver to users with ‘critical’ and ‘substantial’ needs - Islington continues to also see users with ‘moderate’ needs

4 How Reablement was launched…
In line with DoH recommendations for adult social care, based on evidence from other councils, the key triggers to establishing a Reablement service were: Demand for home care had increased and was continuing to increase People over 85 was predicted to increase by 12% by 2012 and 45% by 2022 People traditionally employed in the care industry are getting older – making it harder to recruit care workers needed There was commitment from SMT to implement the DoH recommendations, and the following steps occurred: Reablement Project Team and Home Care Board established Business Case prepared and approved (includes service model) Home Care Project Board approves business case Reablement implementation project commenced 4

5 What is the Re-ablement Service?
The Re-ablement Service is an ‘intake’ service – the ‘Gateway’ to home care services in Islington Anyone you determine needs home care will go to the Re-ablement Service first The aim of a re-ablement service is to work with users and carers, intensely and for a short period of time, to enable them to live more independently in their own homes The service ill be delivered mainly by Enablers and will last for up to six weeks If service users have ongoing home care needs at the end of that period, they will be referred to the brokerage service, which will place hem with a home care provider

6 What does this mean for service users?
If you have an existing home care package – no change arising from the Re-ablement Service Only new referrals to home care services will be directed to the Re- ablement Service Re-ablement is intermediate care and therefore free of charge for the first six weeks Vast majority of users will receive less than six weeks of re- ablement.

7 How will it work? - Overview
The Re-ablement Service is an ‘intake’ service. Anyone you determine needs home care should go to the Re-ablement Service, unless they meet the exclusion criteria: the user has mental health or learning difficulty needs that would prevent them from participating in the Reablement process is not suitable because of particular care needs (e.g. terminal illness) is not old enough (i.e. less than 18 years old) is currently wearing a plaster of Paris cast and is unable to complete any day to day activities . Throughout re-ablement service, user receives regular (at least weekly) reviews.At end of re-ablement period, IF ongoing home care is needed, user referred to brokerage service
