Help us reimagine respite care.
Family caregivers are essential to providing older adults in the community with the extra support and compassion they need. But to effectively fill this role, caregivers must also care for themselves. Relief or respite care can improve caregiver well-being, leading to better health, better social-emotional outcomes, and even lower costs of care. But caregivers need support to find time to rest, clear their minds, take a breath, and take care of their own health and well-being.
That’s why we’re here to help.
November is National Family Caregivers Month, and in recognition of this milestone we are proud to launch Exhale, the Family Caregiver Initiative. Exhale is an opportunity for businesses and organizations to work together to find innovative solutions that give caregivers an opportunity to breathe a little easier. In a short series of virtual workshops, those interested in developing a project will receive free training in creative problem solving and project management, as well as a stipend of $500 for participation and a chance to explore this opportunity for further funding. The workshop series begins January 5, 2022.
