Statewide Lifespan Respite Summit

We Need You, Your Knowledge and Your Experience!

On Wednesday, May 23rd, please join us for a day of learning, networking and planning.

  • Learning about what respite is available in Tennessee and where there are gaps
  • Networking with family caregivers, professionals, state and national represenatives
  • Planning the next steps for respite in YOUR community

The purpose of the Summit is to strengthen state and community partnerships to sustain Lifespan Respite activities; develop strategies to maximize use of existing respite resources and identify and leverage new respite funds; engage in sustainability planning; and generate innovative activities for future development. The TRC will also be presenting the results of the “Let’s Talk About Respite” conversations held across the state in 2017.
