Referral Process

Referral Process

Ascending to Health Respite Care takes patient referrals from all local hospitals and rehab facilities, when they have a patient who is homeless and needs time to recover in a safe place.

  • Referrals should be done when the patient is near or ready for discharge.
  • Patients must be independent of ADL’s, not detoxing, and not sex offenders.

To make a referral please down load the referral form (below) and fill it out Completely. Please do not leave any blank spaces. Fax the form to 719-633-4567. The Ascending to Health Respite Care nurse or a case manager will contact you after confirming that we have space and that the patient is within our scope of practice. The staff will answer any questions you may have when we call you. We will need all medications sent with the patient, O2 arranged if needed etc. If the patient does not have an ID we ask that they stop at the police department to obtain one before arriving at Ascending to Health.
