Non-Medical Respite Housing Program

After a hospital or rehab stay, many individuals can benefit from a safe and stable place to stay before returning to living on their own.

Prestige Healthcare Resources’ nonmedical Respite Housing program offers that place – a stepping stone for those leaving the hospital or rehab to live independently.

We provide a safe environment to rest and access mental health and related services as needed. Those services can include help with addiction and other acute behavioral issues. Prestige Healthcare Resources tailors care and services to an individual’s needs, as determined by our trained staff.

Staff is located on-site 24 hours a day for our enrollees.
