The National Lifespan Respite Conference will be held May 21-23, 2024 at the Hilton Albany in Albany, New York. ARCH is pleased to cohost this important event with the NY State Caregiving and Respite Coalition and the NY State Office for the Aging.

In 2022, the Administration for Community Living released the first-ever National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers.  In keeping with our collective commitment to advance the recommended respite actions in the National Strategy, the theme for the conference is RAISE the Bar for Respite - Strategies to strengthen family caregivers.

The conference will provide the space and energy to lift up best practices in respite care; elevate innovative public and private sector approaches to expand support for working caregivers; escalate new strategies to grow respite capacity to meet the ever-increasing need; step up action to address the direct care workforce crisis; and increase our commitment to person and family-centered respite services for the nation’s more than 53 million family caregivers.

We are pleased to announce that the conference will open the evening of Tuesday, May 21, 2024, with a Welcome Dinner and Keynote Presentation by Jason Resendez, President and CEO, National Alliance for Caregiving.  Jason is a nationally recognized healthcare strategist and advocate. In 2023, Jason was named one of the most consequential leaders in health, science, and medicine by STAT News. Jason will help us set the stage to RAISE the Bar for Respite! 

We will also be recognizing ARCH's 2024 Innovative and Exemplary Respite Services.
