What does it do?

STAR (Short-Term Assessment and Reablement) is a support service that is provided in your own home and focuses on short-term assessment and reablement. Our aim is to improve your ability to live independently. We can provide this service to you for a maximum of six weeks until you are able to manage once again, or we have supported you to receive other appropriate services.

Our Fast Response Service is a borough-wide, short-term service that can respond quickly (within one hour) to requests for care.
We provide care for up to six days in order to make sure that you are safe and keep you safe while a fuller assessment of need is done.
Where possible the care provided will help you become more independent and enable to do things for yourself as much as possible.
The service is intended to stop you from going into hospital when you don't need to and to enable you to return home from hospital as soon
as possible.We provide this service in your own home or wherever you are living in the community.
