  • prompting medication in line with Newport’s medication policy

Reablement

The service provides short-term care support for people to have their care needs assessed, perhaps after a stay in hospital, after a fall or if there is a deterioration in general health and ability.

The support is reviewed each week and if longer term support is assessed as necessary another provider will give deliver this for a charge.    

Support can be provided to encourage independence with bathing and dressing, to improve mobility and to assess the person's ability to prepare a meal.

The service is available every day of the year between 7am and 11pm.
