Medical Respite

Medical Respite

Medical Respite is a 20-bed specialized shelter providing short-term recuperative care upon hospital discharge, or other medical complications, for adults experiencing homelessness. It provides 24-hour staff supervision with the goal of establishing a medical home and attaining stable housing.

Enhanced Care Project

The Enhanced Care Project is a pilot project beginning in Winter 2020. Through a collaboration with VCU Health, the project builds on the success of Daily Planet Health Services Medical Respite Program by adding Certified Nursing Assistants to the care team in order to accept patients who may require additional assistance with activities of daily living. DPHS is accepting referrals from VCU Health only for this pilot project.
