Lifespan Coalition Meetings

Next meeting Sept. 22, 2022, 1:30-2:30 PM. Sign up for meeting invitations and get updates and information on the Lifespan Respite Coalition page in this website.

Washington State’s Lifespan Respite Coalition meets to share information, updates, best practices, and to learn from one another. We occasionally host training sessions on respite-related topics.

Meetings include family caregivers, public and private agency staff, and advocates across the state. The Coalition aims to support individuals from a cross-section of ages, cultural or ethnic backgrounds, and needs or disabilities of the individuals needing care.

Whether or not you are on the mailing list, you can support family caregivers in Washington State by circulating the application link for the Lifespan Respite Voucher and for those interested in becoming a respite provider.
