Good Oaks believes good, enabling care at home is all about maximising independence as much as possible. Our extensive experience with home from hospital and reablement care allows our carers to gently encourage our clients to do as much as they safely can for themselves, while helping with the things they still find challenging.
Good Oaks uses a multi-disciplinary approach to reablement in home from hospital care packages. We focus on actively building enabling relationships with family, friends, nurses, physio- and occupational therapists with the client at the heart of a team working with a common purpose.

Mr K suffered from a stroke in early 2014. After three weeks in hospital, he was discharged to stay with his daughter and son-in-law while he recovered.
Good Oaks was chosen to provide his reablement care package, visiting twice daily and working in partnership with the stroke rehabilitation team.
Good Oaks worked in partnership with the client, the client’s family and the rehabilitation team to deliver a flexible reablement package responsive to the changing needs of the client.
Good Oaks’ aim was to improve Mr K’s confidence and ability to manage his morning routine independently. Our reablement programme encouraged Mr K to do as much as he can himself, and to help with tasks he still found difficult.
Continuity of care was vital for this package as our carers needed a good insight of what Mr K could and couldn’t do, and to allow an enabling, professional relationship to develop.
After initially visiting twice daily, Good Oaks agreed with Mr K to reduce his care visits to one visit in the morning as Mr K was feeling more confident. Still improving and relearning skills with the help of the rehabilitation team and Good Oaks, Mr K has managed to do more and more by himself, and has now cut down Good Oaks’ visits to just twice a week.
The team has been really good in helping me get back to normal after the stroke. I enjoy their company and they’ve been very flexible and a great help, which is much appreciated.more testimonials
