Home Support Services (Carelink)

RehabCare’s Carelink services enables those individuals we support to continue living at home. The suite of services includes home help, home support, home-based respite, hospital discharge and PA services.

With the assistance of trained home support workers, these services are designed around the needs of each individual, ranging from practical domestic chores to assistance with personal care and activities of daily living.

Our home support services are renowned for their flexibility, ensuring that the needs of those we support are fully taken into account at all times, including providing services during unsociable hours and at weekends.
