Tools for Collaboration

At the heart of Lifespan Respite is the concept of collaboration. Throughout the Lifespan Respite Care Act, and in the federal program guidance, references are made to collaboration and coordination among various stakeholders at the federal, state and local levels. This webinar will explore the history, successes, and challenges of collaboration among state agencies, state respite coalitions, and Aging and Disability Resource Centers. While the lessons to be learned will be most useful for those directly involved in planning and implementation of State Lifespan Respite programs and state respite coalitions, others working in social services, long-term services and supports, and health systems will benefit as well.
