Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre A Picture of the Health of a Homeless Individual
2006 All Rights Reserved Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre The Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre (Calgary Drop-In) provides services of
food, shelter, and clothing, counselling and basic medical attention to all those in
need. In operation since 1961, the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre now sleeps 1100
nightly, and provides meals to 3500 people daily. Providing health services to the
complex medical problems faced by the homeless are one of the challenges providers
struggle with. This presentation is an examination of the breakdown in the
continuum of care.
ABSTRACT

Objective: A data collection study was completed to meet the following objectives:
· to obtain a snapshot picture of the current health of Drop-In clients. · to determine which medical services are used by clients · to examine gaps in services and providers The Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre, an emergency shelter located in Calgary’s
downtown core, has approximately 950-1100 individuals using the shelters services
on any given night. A noticeable trend has emerged, as the numbers of shelter users
have grown; clients have increasingly more complex medical conditions. As a result
of these complexities, there is a need to provide appropriate, integrated care. A study
was completed in-house asking clients about the length of time they have been
homeless; their impressions of their health; where they seek medical services; the
types of medical conditions they currently live with; the types of medication they
have been prescribed and are currently taking; and how they pay for their medications.
A sample of one hundred fifty-one (151) clients were surveyed, approximately
15% of the CDIRC’s sheltered population.

· Female respondents perceived their health as very poor to average as compared
to the male respondents whose perceptions ranged from very poor to very good.
· Respondents living in Intox and Transitional housing were older and longer on
the streets than those living in emergency shelter beds.
· Respondents living in emergency shelter beds have a perceived health from poor
to very good, however the longer the respondent lived on the streets a decline of
perceived health was reported.
· No matter where a respondent resided in the shelter system, they reported their
health as Average, even if they reported more than 2 medical conditions or
concerns.
· The primary service provider was 8th &8th Medical Centre, followed by CUPS.
Almost 60% of respondents stated that they will not go to another medical
service provider as a secondary service provider.
· 71% of the respondents did not have a family doctor
· Majority of respondents paid for their medications either by cash or through
Social Services.
Our Conclusions

· Homelessness affects the health and well-being of an individual. The longer
they are on the streets, there appears to be an inconsistency between the
observed health of the individual and the individual’s personal perception of
their own level of health
· As one’s housing becomes more stable, their perceptions of their health become
more realistic and their overall health and well-being appear to improve.
· There is a need for a continuum of care for the homeless population.
· An integrated care model would benefit this population’s diverse medical needs
including addictions and mental health.
Discussion

Survival is this population’s primary struggle.
The medical needs of the homeless do not meet the criteria of any one medical
service provider, therefore an integrated care model would benefit this
population’s diverse medical needs including addictions and mental health.
Most homeless people suffer from one or more chronic conditions, yet our
delivery systems are focused on the episodic treatment of chief complaints at a
given moment in time. Readily accessible, consistent, and continuous care from a
known, trusted clinician is not always available for many people experience
homelessness. For an agency that offers services to more than 1100 individuals a
night, an on-site medical clinic would be of great benefit to meet their medical
needs.
