AARP Report Features Respite for All Volunteer Model
We were so excited to see that the Respite for All Foundation was prominently featured in the AARP’s January 2024 publication, “Respite Services: A Critical Support for Family Caregivers.” This spotlight is part of the AARP Public Policy Institute’s LTSS (long-term services and supports) Choices initiative, which is exploring innovative models and evidence-based solutions—at both the national and international levels—to achieve system-wide LTSS reform.
Our volunteer-based social model has expanded, to date, to 35 locations in 11 states, with more in the planning and launching stages this year. (The AARP article said 16, but we look forward to reaching out to them to let them know how much more we’ve grown.)
Four pages in this report, including testimonials from participants at First United Methodist Church-Montgomery, give a full and clear picture of the amazing ministry taking place. Look for the Alabama spotlight starting at the bottom of page 10!
