Respite Care for the Homeless
Nexus Montgomery partnered with the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services to open a 15 bed respite care facility within the Chase Shelter (600 C, Gude Drive, Rockville, MD 20850). The Respite Care program addresses the short term medical needs for homeless adult men that have been discharged from a Montgomery County hospital. The facility is expected to open in July 2019, and will provide care to as many as 180 clients each year.
Clients are served by both clinical and shelter staff so that medical and social needs can be met. Clinical staff will address a range of medical needs to support recovery and reduce the likelihood of a readmission to the hospital while Case Management staff will connect clients to housing, employment, food services and more to support clients beyond their stay at the center.
