    Programs that provide short term nursing and recuperative care for homeless people who are too ill or frail to recover from a physical illness or injury while living on the streets, but are not ill enough to be in a hospital. Included are free-standing medical respite care facilities, shelter-based programs, transitional housing-based programs, programs that use the shelter voucher system to house homeless people needing a place to recover and programs that contract with adult residential facilities, nursing facilities and other organizations to provide the service. Length of stay is generally determined on a case-by-case basis and a referral from a physician or other health care provider may be required. Other eligibility criteria may apply.
