Subacute facilities provide long term care for individuals who no longer meet criteria for acute care but are not clinically ready to live independently or in a board and care facility. Subacute facilities provide 24/7 psychiatric care, nursing care, and psychosocial rehabilitation services, geared to the needs of individuals with serious mental illness who are placed under Lanterman-Petris-Short (LPS) conservatorship. Subacute is a locked setting level of care. Providers may submit a referral for this level of care as soon as the LPS application is filed.
