‘Virtual Respite’ Offers Creative Activities for Kids, a Break for Caregivers

  • Post Category:Tips

Virtual Respite - Families as AlliesCommunity Links, Inc. is offering virtual respite to children because, in their own words, “In these times of physical distancing we don’t want anyone to feel disconnected. Because of the health climate of today, we are providing respite services in a unique way.”

By connecting the child with a respite mentor, the parent or guardian is able to take a break while the child learns new skills and an opportunity for creative expression.

Watch this video (starting at about the 1-minute mark) to take a look at a respite mentor and child as they connect through one of the many virtual activities Community Links provides.
