Manchester adult care reablement fittings
Manchester City Council will no longer supply equipment under £25 to help vulnerable people stay in their own homes. The council will also ask registered social landlords to fund their own adaptations to enable people to live at home.
Equipment and adaptations to help vulnerable people live at home are part of ‘reablement’, which enables them to move out of more expensive council-run adult care housing and instead live in their own homes.
The council plans to achieve much of its targeted adult care savings by sharply increasing the proportion of its adult care service users who benefit from reablement from 43 percent to 70 percent.
