Convalescent Care Program
The Convalescent Care Program is a 25 bed program located in the Weinberg Housing Resource Center, Baltimore City’s largest public emergency shelter. Clients are able to rest 24 hours a day, while benefiting from nursing and social work services. Nurses provide health education, care coordination and outpatient nursing services 7 days a week, 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Health Care for the Homeless medical providers visit three times a week, and clients who do not already have a primary care provider are linked to the Health Care for the Homeless medical team for ongoing care. The social work staff assists clients with referrals to housing resources, with applications for identification and benefits and with mental health and addictions treatment. Clients must have an acute medical need and be independent with Activities of Daily Living.
