Short term support available within your home

START Reablement Service

START provides practical and emotional assistance to people in the Poole area who are at risk of not being able to live independently in their own home due to frailty, disability or illness.

START aims to maximise your independence and avoid the need for long term care services by helping you regain any skills you may have lost, including improving your mobility and wellbeing. Reablement with the START team will involve working with you so that you learn (or re-learn) the tasks that you need for your everyday life by:

• assessing your individual needs

• setting an outcome plan

• working with you to reach those outcomes

The service is provided by Poole Adult Social Care Services and is free of charge whilst the service is appropriate for you.  A cost will be introduced if you are assessed as needing on-going support.  For further details contact:
