The National Health Care for the Homeless Council defines medical respite care for homeless persons as "acute and post-acute care for those who are too ill or frail to recover from a physical illness or injury on the streets, but are not ill enough to be in a hospital." This can consist of short-term, residential care that allows individuals the opportunity to rest in a safe environment while accessing medical care and other supportive services.

This session will address administrative, financial, operational, and legal issues involved in planning and implementing a medical respite program. Presenters will outline challenges and opportunities in creating the program and explore different models and partnerships created to implement it.
