Fraserdale’s Long Stay is a Registered Mental Health Assisted Living program. We provide a supportive home environment for seven adults with mental health challenges.
Services include psychosocial support, which aims to help residents:
- Learn about and better manage their mental health condition
- Develop life skills
- Enhance their communication and interpersonal skills
We provide support to help residents comply with their medication plan. We assist residents in keeping a watchful eye on their medication practices and health status. We work together with residents to ensure their health and well-being.
Fraserdale’s short-stay units offer a temporary supportive-housing program after clients are discharged from the hospital or community care facility. Our program accommodates three adults and offers support while they are seeking permanent housing in the community of their choice.
If clients require respite, they may also be admitted subject to bed availability.
All clients must:
- Have a case manager who has established an individual housing plan with the client.
- Be between the ages of 19 – 65 years of age.
- Be able to self-administer their medications.
- Be medically and psychiatrically stable.
- Not have current drug/alcohol issues.
- Not demonstrate the likelihood of violent or aggressive behavior.
Referrals are forwarded to Fraserdale through Fraser Health e.g., mental health case managers, other short-stay shelters, Royal Columbian Hospital, Burnaby In-Patient Unit (IPU), social workers and Community Residential Emergency Short Stay and Treatment (CRESST) Units.
