A new facility and program for Helen Farabee Centers to present is a hospital transition step-down unit!
This is a 6 bed facility located within Wichita Falls, TX. It’s a supportive and warm living environment to make a transition from long-term hospitalization to a less restrictive community setting. The residents fulfill a main criterion of long-term hospitalization. The length of stay at this facility is a year with consideration for up to an additional year.
The ultimate goal is a transition to independent living within a community. This ultimate goal is facilitated by HF’s intensive service array of medication services, skills training, counseling, supported services and peer services.
Covid-19 Information for HFC clients, visitors, and community partners:
Our goal is to continue serving individuals in the safest way possible while protecting their health and the health of our staff and community partners.
We are screening all clients, visitors, vendors, and HFC employees with some basic questions regarding possible exposure to the Covid-19 virus. These are NOT tests, just questions. We will help clients with referrals to their primary care providers if they need to inquire about any symptoms. Appointments at HFC may be rescheduled if needed until the concern is reduced.
If you know or suspect you have symptoms, please call your doctor and call us to reschedule your appointment. Stay safe by following CDC guidance to protect yourself and protect others.
