Keep Independent Through Enablement (KITE)
Keep Independent Through Enablement (KITE) is a short-term free of charge service for people who have either been taken ill suddenly, had an accident or are simply growing older and struggling to do daily activities at home independently.
What is enablement?
Enablement provides services for people with poor physical or mental health to help accommodate their illness and support their recovery by helping them learn or relearn the skills necessary for daily living.
KITE employs specially-trained enablement workers and works with occupational and physio therapy services to help you to regain your confidence and get back to doing as much as possible for yourself.
Where possible, we aim to help you become fully independent of any services. But, for tasks you cannot manage independently, we will help you decide what support and care you will need in the longer term.
