National Respite Care Provider Training and Replication Toolkit

Respite Provider Recruitment, Training, and Retention Project Executive Summary

The Respite Provider Recruitment, Training and Retention Project was funded by the Administration for Community Living. Through this initiative, the ARCH National Respite Network and Resource Center (ARCH), in collaboration with the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) and the Respite Care Association of Wisconsin (RCAW), field-tested a competency-based online respite provider training curriculum for entry-level respite providers in 10 pilot sites. The RCAW developed the training curriculum, helped advance a newly developed recruitment campaign among the pilot sites, and worked with ARCH and an evaluation consultant to monitor the effectiveness and reach of the training and marketing strategies. To learn more about the project and the field test, visit the ARCH website.
