    The Wisconsin Lifespan Respite Summit aims to connect policymakers, researchers, family caregivers and statewide partners to exchange knowledge and expertise, leading to the development of a statewide strategy for strengthening the respite care system. 

    Summit Objectives

    • Strengthen state and community partnerships to sustain Lifespan Respite activities
    • Develop strategies to maximize use of existing respite resources, identify and leverage new respite funds

    Lifespan Respite Care Programs

    • Coordinated systems of accessible, community-based respite care services for family caregivers of children and adults of all ages with disabilities, designed to provide a break from the demands of caregiving.
    • Designed to reduce duplication of effort and assist in the development of respite care infrastructures at the state and local levels
    • Meant to improve the delivery and quality of respite services available to families across the age and disability spectrum, including those with dementia.
