All companions will be trained using REST© (Respite Education & Support Tools), an evidenced-supported program that provides individuals with the education and tools they need to be confident companions.  Facilitators:  Lisa Brown, MSW, Caregiver Resource Social Worker & Jeanne Schuller, MSW, In Home Respite Program Development Coordinator.

Refreshments Provided
