We started this program so that MH/SUD consumers like ourselves could have an alternative to unnecessary hospitalizations. The average stay in respite is three to seven days and nights. Sometimes we allow for an extended stay, but we generally like to get you back home as soon as you are ready.
You may be a consumer considering whether or not this program will work for you. You are likely going through a really tough time in your life. You may be experiencing new symptoms or side effects from a new medication. You may be grieving, lonely, or having thoughts or ideas that make you fearful. We are here to help.
You may be a professional considering making a referral to the program. Our Respite brochure should answer some questions.
Our goal is to work with you and any other treatment team members involved to ensure continuity of care. We are NOT professionals, but we have both training and experience.
You may be a family member or close friend wondering how you fit into the picture while your loved one is in Respite. You may want to stay in contact through telephone calls or even a personal visit. We encourage such contact, but we ask that you work with us as we all determine how many contacts would be beneficial.
We believe that recovery is a journey, and folks come to Foundations Respite needing to be relieved of everyday stressors for a little while. We hope that our guests leave more relaxed and better able to cope. If you are a provider for someone in respite and want to connect with your participant, please call and let us know you are coming.
