Educational Resources

This page contains educational information to help educators, family caregivers, respite care providers and other organizations/agencies interested in supporting the cause of respite care.

We encourage our readers to read materials that may not specifically apply to their situation (for example a caregiver caring for a child with special needs may also find articles related to Alzheimer’s or Dementia useful). Family caregivers serving individuals with special needs of all ages often face same or similar problems.
