The informants were identified by heads of the visitation unit and were selected using convenience sampling. The informants (n = 9) were reablement professionals with specific functions in the reablement service. All informants were women aged 25–61 (mean = 41) and had 1–6 years (mean = 3) of experience with the reablement intervention. The reablement professionals included self-help coordinators (n = 4), a self-help instructor (n = 1), self-help therapists (n = 2), and licensed therapists (n = 2), all with healthcare backgrounds as nurses (n = 1), physiotherapists (n = 1), or occupational therapists (n = 7). The self-help instructor and self-help therapists carried out the same work tasks, but they were named after which of the two subunits they were employed. Table 2 describes the specific roles of the informants.
