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.
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:
- The Home Support/Hospital Discharge Service programme which is ideal for clients who require support and assistance with the activities of daily living
- The Home-based Respite Care Service which is designed to give primary carers temporary relief on a planned or emergency basis
- The Home Help Service which assists clients with a range of household tasks
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.
