The LifeCourse Respite Tools were developed by the Charting the LifeCourse Nexus at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, Institute for Human Development in collaboration with ARCH to help families think about and plan for respite.
This webinar explored how to use the LifeCourse Tools for Respite during the coronavirus pandemic to help providers offer respite safely, and to guide family caregivers in using respite safely. We also demonstrated how to use the tools to help develop strategies for family caregivers and care recipients to cope with the pandemic. Examples were presented on how the tools can be used to help family caregivers find balance as a caregiver, and help both caregivers and care receivers find alternative respite options and ways to socially distance and still live the good life!
