Medical respite centre
A Medical Respite Centre changing the lives of people experiencing homelessness
When people become homeless their health deteriorates rapidly. City Rotary has worked closely with Homeless Healthcare to achieve a Medical Respite Centre providing pre and post hospital care for people experiencing homelessness, assisted by Rotary Clubs of Perth and Heirisson. The benefits of the Medical Respite Centre are reduced repeat visits to emergency departments and re-admittance to hospital, addressing chronic health conditions and providing pathways out of homelessness.
