short-term temporary relief, supports caregivers who are caring for loved ones. Respite allows caregivers to step away from their duties to refresh and relax.
Respite is often referred to as
"giving the gift of time."
REST is an evidenced-based, national training program which prepares people, in both formal and informal support networks, to learn how to help. NYSCRC has trainers across New York State.
If your organization would like to provide REST companion trainings for YOUR volunteer program, NYSCRC can connect you with a REST trainer in your area.
