Social Care Reablement is a specialist Homecare team that works across the city to provide support to citizens in their own homes. This is mostly acute, short term care for citizens who have recently been discharged from Hospital or another service.

The JackDawe team provide a specialist service supporting citizens with a range of complex needs, to enable them to continue with everyday activities and tasks that are meaningful to them. This also encourages independence and can reduce the impact of behavioural and psychological symptoms associated many complex needs. JackDawe service also supports in practical ways, such as medication management, personal care and home management.
