There is a need for more respite programs in Wisconsin. Throughout the state, there is funding available to pay for respite care. But in most communities, there are very few, if any, providers. Respite care programs can look like a variety of models. Some use volunteers, and there is no fee to the participants. Other respite care services are paid through waiver funds that are provided by the state. Respite Care Association of Wisconsin is offering a free six-week virtual workshop so that you can explore the idea of bringing respite to your community. You will walk through the steps with other like-minded individuals that want to build a respite program. Follow the Workshop information/registration link for more information.
