Medical respite care provides a safe place for healing and recovery from acute health care events for people experiencing homelessness. Within these programs, providing trauma-informed care is essential. A critical element of trauma-informed care is providing a safe and healing environment, one that is accessible, comforting, and promotes recovery.
This webinar will provide an overview of on creating a healing environment within your own medical respite program, applicable to all programs with a variety of resources and clients served. Additionally, there will be an open discussion to answer questions and share what strategies programs have already been implementing.
