The New York State Caregiving and Respite Coalition, in collaboration with the ARCH National Respite Network and Resource Center, will host the 2019 National Lifespan Respite Conference in Buffalo, NY, beginning the evening of August 30 and concluding on May 2, 2019. The conference will be preceded by the Lifespan Respite Grantee and Partner Learning Symposium for grantees and partners only on April 30, 2019.

The theme for the conference, Illuminate Respite, is inspired by the rich history of Buffalo, located on the shores of Lake Erie near Niagara Falls. In the late 19th century, Buffalo was the first city to implement widespread streetlights, earning it the nickname, “The City of Light.” During this time Buffalo was a hub of innovation, using the natural power of Niagara Falls to bring light and growth to the city. This conference will provide a space to harness the power of the respite network to explore and formulate strategies to meet the respite needs of the nation’s 43 million family caregivers.

Previous national respite conferences have been very successful, and we expect no less from the 2019 conference in Buffalo, NY! The conference will offer valuable, up-to-date information for families, professionals and other stakeholders related to respite supports for caregivers. Conference keynote speakers and breakout sessions will offer a multitude of opportunities to shine a light on Lifespan Respite Care Programs and other respite services and initiatives that support caregivers.

This conference is an opportunity to come to the “City of Light” to learn about  innovative best practices related to respite care, to network with like-minded families, professionals, and colleagues, and to light the path to respite for others when you return home. 

Call for Presentations Coming Soon!
