ARCH is pleased to join the BREAK Exchange in inviting you to attend the webinar, “It’s like a weight lifted off your shoulder”: A qualitative study of adult carers taking a break, presented by our colleagues at Carers Scotland. The webinar will be held on Thursday, April 11, 2024 at 11:00 AM ET (10:00 AM CT).

Without sufficient support, informal carers are at risk of poor health and a breakdown in the care they provide, with consequences for the carer and the cared-for-person. Respite care is used to support carers to have a break, to enable them to continue caring. There is a small body of literature exploring respite limited to adult day services and carers for people with dementia, but little research exploring breaks from caring for people with other conditions. The presenter will share findings from qualitative research in Scotland that begins to address this gap.
