 Have come across this interesting piece of news today and thought I would share it with you.There are many of us who can't quite grasp the idea of reablement and yet its purpose is so simple.

".....Ruth Crowder, vice chair of the Welsh Reablement Alliance, said:
"It prevents people becoming dependent, prevents them needing to go into care.
"Reablement focuses on how you can help people to really start to take responsibility and maximise their own independence so they can live the life they want to live.
"Whenever we hear older people talk about what they want it's about staying in their own home.
"It's about doing all those things that are important to them, whether that's playing with their grandchildren, seeing their friends, being in contact with their family."

 Think about it....where is the one place you want to be when you are not feeling 100%? For me it's home.
