ARCH is pleased to join the BREAK Exchange in inviting you to attend the webinar, Alabama Lifespan Respite: Caregiver Wellness Initiative. The webinar will be held on Tuesday, March 7, 2023 at 11:00 AM ET (10:00 AM CT).
Alabama Lifespan Respite (ALR) identified a lack of emotional and mental health supports for rural/underserved family caregivers as a growing problem prior to the Spring of 2020, but this deficiency was amplified in the wake of the pandemic. In response, ALR established the Caregiver Wellness Initiative through a Lifespan Respite grant to provide free mental health counseling and support to qualifying caregivers with the intent of increasing total caregiver wellbeing and potentially decreasing the need for emergency respite. ALR will discuss challenges, successes, potential funding sources, and collaborations for implementation/replication of this Lifespan Respite grant activity.
