DNMM's Nursing Facility Transition Services is expanding! We can now offer the same services to people in hospitals and acute care settings that we have been providing for years to folks in nursing facilities.
So what exactly does this mean? The expanded transition program can work with anyone who is in a hospital, acute care setting, or nursing facility that wishes to transition back into the community. Once an assessment is completed a determination will be made for the program services the person is eligible for.
A few of the services that are available include:
Assistance with housing applications
First month's rent
Some Durable Medical Equipment
Home healthcare service setup
Continued support to maintain housing, benefits and eligibility through MDHHS
Anyone can make the referral, it does not have to be an employee of a hospital or care facility. It can be anyone that desires transitioning back into the community. Once a referral is made, DNMM will complete an assessment to see if the hospital resident qualifies for the program services.
Face-to-face contact with residents is possible, but due to COVID concerns, contact through virtual media is preferred.
