Rose House

Rose House is an innovative and unique “hospital diversion” model whereby persons seeking temporary residential care/respite care can stay from one to five nights in a warm, friendly, safe and supportive home-like environment where they are taught to use new recovery and relapse prevention skills. Rose House’s services are designed to help ‘at risk’ individuals to break the cycle of learned helplessness and recidivism and to move away from what are often long histories of cycling from home to crisis to hospital, year after year. This is achieved through twenty-four hour peer support, self-advocacy education, self-help training and mutual understanding.
