Home care re-ablement services: investigating the longer-term impacts (prospective longitudinal study)

This study aimed to provide robust evidence on the immediate and longer-term benefits of home care re-ablement, by comparing outcomes for users of home care re-ablement with outcomes for people using conventional home care services; identify factors affecting the level and duration of benefits for service users; estimate the unit costs of home care re-ablement services; identify impacts on and savings in the use of social care and other services that could offset the costs of re-ablement; and describe the content of home care re-ablement services.
