Creating an international network of organizations that prepare individuals to support caregivers through respite.
Marklund, a non-profit human services organization and a leader in respite services, developed REST (Respite Education and Support Tools) - a unique two-fold educational program.
REST is a professionally designed "Train the Trainer" course that provides very specialized education to those who will then go out and train indviduals to be respite care providers. Representatives from religious and healthcare organizations, senior living facilities, schools or other grokups are elgiible to recieve this training and then share this education among their communities.
REST is also an original educational cokurse that provides volunteer respite training to adults and teens who want to offer very special care and assistance to caregivers.
