Home Assessment Reablement Team (HART)

HART Home Assessment Reablement Team

The Home Assessment Reablement Team (HART), launched on 1 October 2016, is a service that provides a short period of care and support to patients in Oxfordshire as they regain their independence and confidence in the skills they need to live at home safely.

HART offers 'reablement' support both to people considered medically fit enough to be discharged from hospital, and those referred in the community, for example, by general practitioners or community hospitals.

It will work with service users, their family and informal carers to provide a short period of support - no longer than six weeks - to help patients function as independently as possible in their own homes or usual place of residence.

GPs, community hospitals, other healthcare providers and carers can refer patients to the HART service.

HART was commissioned by Oxfordshire County Council and incorporate and replaces the Supported Hospital Discharge Service (SHDS) and the Oxfordshire Reablement Service, which was run by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
