 Summer of Respite

With memorial day behind us, Itís time to roll out our fifteenth annual Summer of Respite series. Since we first announced our Summer of Respite 2001, each yearís series has been a smashing success. Every summer, we encourage caregivers to continue helping each other by sending in your respite tips and techniques. This summer, it is more important than ever for each and every one of us to avail ourselves of the benefits that respite offers.

We caregivers need to really celebrate ourselves this year and take advantage of the respite opportunities that will make our lives less stressful and more productive. This is the ďSummer of Respite 2015Ē and each week, we will feature Respite Highlights for you to consider utilizing. These highlights will consist of ideas, tips and proven techniques for achieving respite during each week of the summer.

And, of course, with all great things concerning caregivers, itís a group effort. Email me your favorite respite tips to share within this newsletter. If everyone sends their favorite tips, Iím sure there will be plenty of new and interesting ideas for all of us to add to our list.

The first thing that will provide peace and comfort as many of us travel to see loved ones is to develop a comprehensive plan for traveling with our loved ones.
