Supporting hospital discharge in Neath and Port Talbot: An integrated approach to reablement

Cover Case Study 115

This Housing LIN Case Study no 115 takes a detailed look at the new Residential Reablement Unit at Gwalia Llys y Seren in Port Talbot.

Opened in July 2014, it is an innovative service commissioned by Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board and Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council and is achieving impressive results.

The commitment is for community services, alongside health and social care, to provide an integrated model of 24 hour care for patients clinically discharged from acute care who require reablement support and additional recovery time to establish appropriate discharge arrangements to suit individual needs.
