Working in a Rehabilitation Centre

What is a rehabilitation centre?

For many people, receiving care is a lifetime necessity. Rehabilitation centres cater to those transitioning out of care, and back into the community. This kind of work is ideal for those with patience, compassion, and plenty of life skills. 

Rehabilitation centres provide support to those transitioning from complex care to independent living in the community. Rehabilitation centres cater to a variety of needs and individuals, providing a service for all kinds of recoveries. 

Typically offered in a residential setting, rehabilitation centre jobs are supportive roles. Learn more about the types of care here.

What are the benefits of working in a rehabilitation centre?

Here are just a few of the reasons why you might want to consider working in rehabilitation:

Roles and responsibilities in a rehabilitation centre

Rehabilitation centre jobs are different to many other care jobs, as the aim is to eventually stop providing care. Unique responsibilities include:

  • Teaching life skills
  • Organising activities
  • Providing considered advice
  • Conducting online research into niche areas
  • Cooperative working
  • Identifying support needed in the community.

Interested in starting your rehabilitation centre career?

Rehabilitation centre jobs rarely require degrees or qualification. Your attitude and values are much more important. Transferable life skills are beneficial in rehabilitation centres, particularly if you have previous experience in care.
