Brighton & Hove’s re-ablement home care service, Independence at Home

Efficiency and income generation

Brighton & Hove's re-ablement home care service, Independence at Home, provides a six week programme to help people to regain their confidence and independence after a period in hospital, which also reduces demand on statutory services. In 2013/14, 202 people completed a re-ablement service and of these, 70 per cent were able to live at home with no or less support after receiving the service. This resulted in saving the council around £313,000.
