Give Me a Break: Respite and Placing a Loved One

January 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Do you fantasize about short-term or long-term breaks from your caregiving duties—even when it seems like an impossibility? Respite (taking a break) is a healthy and important part of caring for your loved one.

This workshop will explore important questions like:
• What is respite care? And what types of respite exist?
• When “should” I place a loved one into a care home?
• How can I find community resources for respite care and care homes?

“Give Me a Break” will be facilitated by Elizabeth Reeves, PCOA’s Director of the Community Services System. Elizabeth has had the pleasure of working with people receiving long-term care and their families for almost 30 years. She is currently the Director of the Community Services System at PCOA. Before joining PCOA, Elizabeth worked as a case
manager and then a supervisor, assisting people receiving service through the Arizona Long Term Care System.

If you have questions, would like more information, or wish to RSVP for the workshop, please contact Tonetta Clay, Family Caregiver Support Group Specialist at (520) 305-3405 or tclay@pcoa.org.

The link for the virtual meeting will be provided to you once you register.
