The Rehabilitation and Sports Association of People with Disabilities in North-Rhine Westphalia (German: Behinderten- und Rehabilitationssportverband Nordrhein-Westfalen – BRSNW) invites the REHACARE visitors to inform themselves about the variety of sports for people with disabilities and to try out different types of sports directly on site. The services and activities in the areas of rehabilitation, popular and competitive sports are aimed not only at affected persons – family members and especially people that work in rehabilitation and care professions will also find many ideas and inspiration.

Fun, games and expert advice in the Sports Center

Even people that are not actively involved in sports will discover that with a disability or age-related restrictions everything is still possible.
  • Where can I find a sport activity that is individually tailored to me?
  • What types of sport are available for people with disabilities?
  • What kind of sport is practicable and still enjoyable for me?
  • How can I be active even in my advanced years?
Answers to all these questions can be found at REHACARE.
