The Urgent Need!
One of the distinct purposes of the Mission’s Recovery Lodge is to offer a Medical Respite Program, providing structured health care and wrap-around support services to homeless guests with medical issues that can’t be effectively addressed in the normal emergency shelter environment. Recovery Lodge case managers will coordinate care through partnerships with health care providers and community agencies, helping guests regain their health and successfully transition out of the Recovery Lodge into other appropriate housing.
This kind of respite care assists guests in navigating complex health systems, maintaining ongoing relationships with medical providers, and coordinating transportation to and from appointments and support service. It provides the personalized support needed to stay on track with their individual care plans and lower the chances they will return to the hospital
