Mindfulness Monday

We invite you to join Mindfulness Mondays, a solid space for you to feel held and supported while you direct your attention to you. Each month, we’ll explore a new theme as we practice slowing down, settling into our bodies, and turning within.
Mindfulness practices have been shown to provide many benefits in all areas: physical, mental, and emotional. The 30-minute session will include 5 minutes of instruction, 20 minutes of guided practice, and 5 minutes for participants to share if they choose.
Led by a certified yoga and meditation instructor and full-time caregiver. No experience is necessary. Come exactly as you are. Please register for each session to receive the Zoom link!
1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at 9 am.

Webinar Wednesday

Each month RCAW offers a 60-minute informative webinar regarding respite care in Wisconsin! RCAW staff will summarize how their programs, grants, FREE online training, and resources can maximize other primary caregiver support programs. Each month, Webinar Wednesday will also host guest speakers who are subject-matter experts to educate viewers on various respite related topics. 

Monthly Mini

Each month Respite Care Association of Wisconsin releases a FREE mini online training. Monthly Mini-Courses are short courses (30 minutes) that cover a variety of topics that might be geared for either family caregivers, respite providers, or both. These courses may focus on children, adult, elderly, or lifespan topics.

Two Minute Tip Tuesday

Twice a month, the Respite Care Association of Wisconsin publishes a short video with helpful tips, tricks, or information. Two Minute Tip Tuesday is a video series published on the RCAW YouTube page. These short videos share tips and tricks that can help respite providers, family caregivers, or anyone else supporting individuals with disabilities across the lifespan.
