National Respite Conference
September 13 - 15, 2022
The National Lifespan Respite Conference, held September 13-15, 2022 in Madison, WI, was a huge success and it was wonderful to see so many of you in person! Many thanks again to the Respite Care Association of Wisconsin for cohosting the event.
The theme for the conference was Reimagine Respite. The pandemic cast a harsh light on the lack of support for family caregivers, but it also presented opportunities to raise awareness and rethink traditional supports.
The conference provided a space to ‘dream’ big, ‘explore’ new ideas, and ‘create’ different ways to ‘achieve’ respite. It also ‘inspired’ us to build on what we learned and ‘discover’ new ways to meet the respite needs of the nation’s more than 50 million family caregivers.

Next National Lifespan Respite Conference
Because the International Short Break Conference will be held in Poland in September 2023, the next National Lifespan Respite Conference is expected to be held Spring or early Summer, 2024 to avoid conflicts. Check back frequently for updates.
