RehabCare’s community-based resource centres and day services assist people with disabilities to achieve their full potential and a better quality of life.
Our resource centres and day services provide people with access to a range of supports and activities on a one-to-one basis and in group settings. Activities vary from centre to centre and depending on the interests of the people who attend each service. Their chosen offerings include but are not limited to, art and crafts, drama, horticulture, leisure activities, cookery, independent living skills, sports, dancing, group excursions and many more.
Each person who attends our resource centres is supported to increase their independence and confidence, enabling them to improve their quality of life. This is done through person-centred planning.
RehabCare has more than 50 resource centres and day services across the country. The individuals who attend our services are aged between 18 and 65 years and have one or a combination of the following disabilities: intellectual disability, mental health issue, physical disability, autism, sensory disability, and/or an acquired brain injury.
To align with New Directions, our Day Service provision will see our services continue to be tailored to the needs of each individual; they will be outcome-focused and based on international best practice. Creative ways of providing services were developed as a necessity during the pandemic, and we maintain the positive elements developed during this time. We endeavour to ensure that social skills development, social opportunities, and peer support continue to be core to service provision.
