Exploring Respite Opportunities and Options  from ARCH

Please find in the ARCH document below, resources that include informal community, relationship or technology supports that might provide respite opportunities or respite enhancements outside the formal respite services system.  While many of the suggestions are for respite in the community, there are also resources, such as links to online support groups and e-learning, virtual museum trips, technology supports, mindfulness, stress reduction and relaxation apps, and more that family caregivers can access from home to get a much needed break.  If you think of more ideas, send them to ARCH and we will add them to the list!
