A Lifetime of Care

A special gift in your Will is the most direct and lasting way of providing a lifetime of loving care and support to those who need it most. 

Each and every person who comes to Rehab shares one dream - to be free to realise their true potential and play a full and meaningful role in their community. 

By leaving a gift to Rehab in your Will you are helping to provide the essential care, support, life skills and vocational training that enables those dreams to come true.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I take care of my family and still leave a gift to RehabCare?

After you have cared for your family there are many ways you can leave a powerful and lasting gift to RehabCare.

When you are considering making a Will, the first and most important step is to make sure that you have cared for your family and the ones you love. They are the most important people in your life and they are the ones who will continue to depend on your love and kindness long after you have gone.

But once you have cared for your family, you can help provide that same love and kindness to the most disadvantaged people in your community by making a gift to RehabCare. You can leave a specific sum or simply request that a small part of your estate go towards helping RehabCare to provide life-changing support and care for many years to come.

Can I decide where my gift is used?

RehabCare provides an enormous range of health and social care services all over Ireland. The diversity of our services is only matched by the diversity of the people who avail of them. You can, if you wish, choose which Rehab service or service centre your gift is used to support or which area of our work you wish to support.

I could only leave a small gift, can that help in any way?

Every gift, no matter how large or small, will make a real and lasting difference.

Your gift, no matter how big or small, will be used where it will have the most impact whether that be providing one night of respite care to an exhausted family or a lifetime of educational support to a child with learning difficulties. Every gift will help to change a life.

What do I do if I have already made a Will?

Simply inform your solicitor that you wish to change your Will. If you have previously made a Will but would now like to add a gift to RehabCare you can do so. Simply inform you solicitor that you wish to change your Will to include a gift to RehabCare. It’s as simple as that. And remember you can change your Will as many times as you wish.

What happens if my circumstances change and I want to alter my Will?

You can change your Will at any time and for any reason. We cannot stress this enough. Your Will is entirely yours to control. There are no limits and no restrictions. So if your circumstances change or you decide to alter your Will for any reason, simply contact your solicitor. And remember, changing your Will is a really simple and quick process.

I have heard that charitable gifts in a Will are tax free. Is that true?

Yes.

Gifts in your Will are normally subject to tax, once they pass the level of the current threshold. (Your solicitor can advise you about the current thresholds). But when you leave an inspiring gift in your Will to RehabCare or any other registered charity, it is entirely tax free. That means that all of your wonderful gift will go directly towards helping the people you wish to support.

I am considering leaving a gift in my Will to RehabCare. Who can I talk to about it?
