Congratulations to Doris Green, director of the New York State Caregiver and Respite Coalition (NYSCRC), who was chosen as the REST Trainer of the Quarter! As a Master Trainer, Doris held two courses, bringing 20 new REST Trainers to New York. She has done some terrific outreach and marketing to promote REST by hosting a successful NYSCRC Annual Conference in Albany, and presenting on respite during the 2016 Caregiver Conference in Plattsburgh. In addition, the NYSCRC has provided mini-grants for organizations in the state to start or enhance their respite programs and services for caregivers.
“We want to create an army of REST Companions to increase the number of options that caregivers have when seeking a break,” Doris added. We would like to recognize Doris and thank her for her efforts!
