Support when you return home
Sometimes you may just need our help for a few weeks, helping you get back on your feet at home after a hospital stay.
We take reablement referrals directly from hospitals and community hospitals who provide us with the information we need, focusing on your own individual home care needs.
- In South Gloucestershire we provide a reablement service for you at home.
- Our Somerset home care teams provide a similar service called ‘D2A’ (Discharge to Assess), again taking referrals directly from local hospitals.
Our Reablement Centre service
We also take reablement referrals directly from hospitals and community hospitals who provide us with the information we need, focusing on your own individual needs.
Our Orchard Grove Reablement Centre is for people who are leaving hospital but are not able to return home, referred to us through the hospital discharge teams only.
Length of stay is normally no more than six weeks before returning to your home.

What is respite care?
We define this in two ways. You might care for someone 24/7 and need respite or are you simply looking for somewhere that offers specialist, short-term respite care for someone with nursing or dementia care needs. Take a look at our 'Respite care' page for more information.
