Reablement is a form of rehabilitation to help people to regain the ability to look after themselves following illness or injury.

For patients in need of nursing care, but not necessarily within a hospital environment, the short stay reablement unit, located within The Grand care home in West Bridgford, offers a high quality, 24 hour, seven days a week programme of individualised care that will support and allow patients to return home as soon as possible.

Patients who need more intensive medical or nursing care, and require bed based rehabilitation, will be cared for in Lings Bar Hospital in Nottingham.
