The purpose of the project was to fund medical respite beds within an existing emergency shelter in Long Beach to meet the needs of older adults who are experiencing homelessness. The project will provide a safe environment for older adults to recover from illness and begin working on a long-term housing plan. After conducting a review of the literature, this grant writer developed a proposal to fund a medical respite program with 24-hour lodging, access to medical staff, case management, medication distribution, healthy meals, access to shower and restroom facilities, linkage to community services, and psychotherapy. Older adults will be allowed to heal within their hometown and reestablish links to social support systems. After reviewing various funding sources, the Ahmanson Foundation was selected as the funder for this project. The actual submission and funding of the grant proposal was not required for completion of this project proposal.
