Similar to planning for other unexpected life events, knowing your options and preparing for a day you or your loved one may need residential care reduces the burden of finding care when the time comes. Residential mental health can be an important part of recovery. Residential care is there to support individuals in their most difficult times. Ideally, residential care is short-term and temporary, supporting a return to the most independent living as possible. The best time to plan for and learn about residential care is long before you or your loved one may need it. There are indeed many steps to obtain residential care, so it’s a great idea to understand them ahead of time. The information below is meant as a starting point to help you find care.
- Schedule a time to discuss your concerns with your primary care physician, your mental health professional, or anyone else on your support team to learn about your options.
- If you do not have the support described above, contact your health insurance provider to get a referral to a healthcare provider or call your local county Exceptional Needs Care Coordinator (ENCC) to get you connected to local resources.
