    Providing Medical Respite for People Experiencing Homelessness during COVID-19

    AUG 11 | 10 - 11:30 AM PDT | Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) and the National Institute for Medical Respite Care (NIMRC)

    REGISTER for FREE

    Medical respite care, also referred to as recuperative care, is provided to people experiencing homelessness who are not sick enough to stay in the hospital, but are too sick to return to a shelter or the streets given their health needs. Medical respite programs are intended to be a safe option for people to receive ongoing care and supports, and provide an alternative to extended hospital stays. Medical respite sites have played a critical role in supporting individuals who are homeless as well as hospitals experiencing a surge in capacity during the COVID-19 pandemic

    This webinar, coordinated by the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) and the National Institute for Medical Respite Care (NIMRC) and made possible through support from the California Health Care Foundation (CHCF), will highlight the experiences and innovations of three medical respite centers in California and Washington State during COVID-19. Presenters will provide an overview of programs and share how their medical respite center responded to COVID-19, including changes to structures, processes, and partners, as well as lessons for how to improve their services for people experiencing homelessness. This webinar is targeted to policymakers, payers, homelessness service and health care providers, and other stakeholders interested in medical respite within California and across the country.
