Lifespan Respite WA Coalition

Purpose: Organizations and individuals working together for combined action for respite services to improve the lives of unpaid family caregivers.

Coalition meetings include family caregivers, public and private agency staff, and advocates across the state. We aim to support individuals from a cross-section of ages, cultural or ethnic backgrounds, and needs or disabilities of the individuals needing care. In 2024, we are getting a “Fresh Start” with a new grant and goals to help us bring the action plans of the National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers to life!

We invite you to join us at our next meeting, online and by phone. To receive a meeting invitation please fill out the form below. Next meeting 11 AM, Tuesday, April 23 2024

About Lifespan Coalitions

Most State Respite Coalitions are grassroots membership organizations composed of state and local, public and private organizations, which represent individuals with disabilities or chronic conditions of all ages; family caregivers; community and faith-based organizations and respite, social service and health care providers and advocates. Most often their activities are focused on advocacy, networking, and public education. They may be run by volunteers or paid staff.
