Respite Care Services

Respite Care Services

Centre-based Respite

RehabCare's centre-based respite care services provide adults and children with disabilities with the opportunity to take a holiday, while at the same time providing the families/carers with a break from full-time caring.

The presence of a respite service is key in helping a person to remain in the family home for as long as possible. The philosophy of our centre-based services is to provide a home-from-home setting, making it an enjoyable and relaxed time for the individual in an environment where the family can be confident that their family member's needs are being well catered for.



Home-based Services

RehabCare's home-based services provide a range of support services which enable a significant number of people to continue living at home, with appropriate support and assistance from trained home support workers.

These services include:

RehabCare's home-based services are renowned for their flexibility, ensuring that the needs of people using the service are fully taken into account at all times, including during unsociable hours and at weekends. For more information on these services which are provided by CareLink, go to
