Recuperative Care

Our recuperative care program is a residential program for men and women struggling with homelessness who are discharged from the hospital but are still in need of post-treatment care.  They may need time to recover from a trauma or assault, mange a chronic contition, stabilize on a new medication, prepare for a medical procedure, or recover from a serious viral or bacterial illness.  With this time to recuperate comes a clean bed, three meals a day, showers, help following post-care instructions, prescription assistance, help with making follow-up appointments, and assistance with other needs.
We have recently expanded our recuperative care program and we now have 21 beds for homeless individuals who have a need for medical respite but have no place to go.  We have strengthened our partnerships with area hospitals, including HCA/TriStar, St. Thomas, Vanderbilt Medical Center, and others. 
Our staff works with hospitals and other healthcare providers to take referrals, and develop post-stay exit plans for our guests.  Our goal is for each recuperative care guest to have an action plan in place by the end of their stay.  Many guests who first came to us for recuperative care have been connected with the wide array of resources available through Room In The Inn and continued their journey to permanent housing.
