Alliance calls for improved OAP care.
It follows the release of a Social Services Improvement Agency (SSIA) report 'Better Support at Lower Cost'.
The Welsh Reablement Alliance - formed by groups including WRVS, Age Cymru, the Stroke Association in Wales and Care & Repair Cymru - has welcomed the SSIA report, supported its conclusions and is calling for better access to effective reablement services across Wales.
Sally Rivers, WRVS head of services for Wales, said: "The Alliance is campaigning for the development of reablement services for older people in Wales.
"This can be achieved by putting together a Welsh quality framework, which would be a useful guide for local authorities. It's really important there is also a focus on helping people to integrate back into their community after a stay in hospital, to make sure people don't feel isolated."
