The National Lifespan Respite Conference (NLRC), hosted by the ARCH National Respite Network and Resource Center (ARCH), the New York State Caregiving and Respite Coalition (NYSCRC), and the New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA), will be held at the Hilton Albany in Albany, NY, on May 21-23, 2024.
The theme for the conference, RAISE the Bar for Respite, Strategies for strengthening family caregivers, is meant to be timely and inspirational. Coming on the heels of the 2022 release of the National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers by the Administration for Community Living, the theme is a call to action. The report includes nearly 500 actions that can be adopted at every level of government and across the public and private sectors, including actions that each of us can take, to advance supports to strengthen the nation’s more than 53 million family caregivers.
The conference focus is on respite, but our driving intention is to strengthen and support family caregivers, who are the backbone of the nation’s long-term services and supports system. The conference will provide opportunities to RAISE the Bar for Research, Advocacy, Innovation, Services and Supports, and Education in the respite care field.
Previous National Lifespan Respite Conferences have been very successful, and we expect no less from the 2024 conference in Albany! The conference will offer valuable, up-to-date information for families, professionals and interested agencies and organizations on respite and caregiver supports. Keynote speakers and breakout sessions will offer a multitude of opportunities to RAISE the Bar for Respite.
