Since 2007 the Nevada Lifespan Respite Care Coalition has supported caregivers across the state by promoting awareness and access to, as well as coordination and advocacy for, respite services in Nevada throughout the lifespan.

“When families caring for a loved one with significant needs receive respite services, the likelihood of these families staying together and having good health and well being increases exponentially. It’s tremendously gratifying to see relief in the eyes of an overwhelmed parent or spouse. I think that’s why being a part of the Nevada Lifespan Respite Care Coalition is so impactful. Once a month, I am able to connect with colleagues and friends working in respite care programs who share this same compassion for helping families and keeping people in their homes and communities. There’s also a strong commitment in the NLRCC to share resources and collaborate to increase awareness about respite care so we can help as many people as possible.”
