Is there any short-term support available following illness, injury or a stay in hospital?

The Reablement Team (St Helens Council) that aims to support disabled people (18+) and older people keep as independent as possible when they are medically fit enough to be discharged from hospital.

A staff team including Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Social Workers, Pharmacists, Community Psychiatric Nurses, Assistant Practitioners and Support Workers undertake assessments and then find out what support can be provided to help you build up your confidence, improve mobility, carry out personal care tasks, improve diet and healthy living. The programme usually lasts for between six to eight weeks and you must be referred by a GP or health professional to access the service.
