The theme for the conference is Reimagine Respite. The pandemic cast a harsh light on the lack of support for family caregivers, but it also presented opportunities to raise awareness and rethink traditional supports.
How was respite care adapted during the pandemic? Might adaptions provide a model to Reimagine Respite post-COVID?
This conference will provide a space to ‘dream’ big, ‘explore’ new ideas, and ‘create’ different ways to ‘achieve’ respite. It will also ‘inspire’ us to build on what we learned and ‘discover’ new ways to meet the respite needs of the nation’s more than 50 million family caregivers.
