  • To perform occupational analysis and risk evaluation to formulate appropriate interventions and goals to reduce the consequences of disability and deteriorating conditions and maximise the person's level of independence. To seek opinion from other relevant professionals to inform analysis and reasoning where appropriate to guide practice.
  • To set functional reablement goals in collaboration with the client and where appropriate their family/carer respecting their diversity and cultural needs to increase independence in identified activities of daily living.
  • To complete person centred assessments with the client and where appropriate their family/carer, using a strength based outcome focused approach for adults undergoing a period of reablement.
  • To provide risk assessment for moving and handling situations for the reablement service.
