Crisis Respite is a short-term community-based alternative to psychiatric hospitalization. Respite occurs in a home-like setting within a safe and relaxed atmosphere, away from the stressors that may be impacting an individual’s sense of security and stability. Residents at Respite receive three meals a day, interact in the milieu, and receive on-site support from caring and skillful respite staff at all times. Individuals can continue working on their goals and maintain contact with their natural supports and any ongoing treatment providers in the community. Crisis respite seeks to prevent the need for higher levels of care by providing a place to stabilize symptoms and strengthen community resources.
