The theme of the 2019 ARCH National Conference will be “Illuminate Respite.” This theme is inspired by the rich history of Buffalo, located on the shores of Lake Erie near Niagara Falls. In the late 19th century, Buffalo was the first city to implement widespread streetlights, earning it the nickname, “The City of Light.” During this time Buffalo was a hub of innovation, using natural power to bring light and growth to the city. This conference will provide a space to harness the power of the network to explore and formulate strategy to shine a light on the respite needs of 43 million caregivers. CONFERENCE WEBSITE

Caregiver Simulation Experience
Interested in bringing a Caregiver Simulation to your community? Contact Doris Green
What better way to understand caregivers, than to spend a few hours in their shoes. This active simulation allows participants to experience a fraction of the challenges caregivers face, day in and day out. Each participant will be assigned a role, and will have tasks, dilemmas and opportunities to navigate throughout the afternoon. We believe that this experience can develop empathy for caregivers, care receivers and agencies who are involved along the way. We invite you to join us in this simulation as a way of better understanding caregivers, so that we may then effectively engage them. See what people are saying.
