Lifespan Respite: Who, What, When, Where and How?

PowerPoint Presentation
These PPT slides provide answers to the questions: what is respite, why is it important, how big is the problem of respite access, what is Lifespan Respite and why do we need it?  Most importantly, the presentation lays out who needs to be involved, the state requirements for preparing for and implementing a state Lifespan Respite Program in collaboration with all the neccessary stakeholders and partners, and where to find examples of innovation and best practices.  Feel free to download these slides and adapt them for your own use -- with ARCH acknowledgment, of course!
