Respite for Family Caregivers of Individuals with Brain Injury – Exploring New Partnerships

The webinar is brought to you by the National Association of State Head Injury Administrators (NASHIA) and the ARCH National Respite Network and Resource Center.

Respite for family caregivers of people with brain injury is often limited because of scarce public dollars as well as a critical shortage of qualified providers. The ARCH National Respite Network and Resource Center and the National Association of State Head Injury Administrators are proud to bring you this webinar. The purpose of the webinar is to describe the unique respite needs of this population; share resources provided by both the respite network and state brain injury programs; and learn about respite opportunities available through the Lifespan Respite Care program. Representatives from ARCH and NASHIA and a state Lifespan Respite Program grantee will present this information and explore strategies for collaboration.
