Get in Tune with Respite
The Tennessee Respite Coalition, in collaboration with the ARCH National Respite Network, will host the 2014 National Lifespan Respite Conference in Nashville, TN on October 7-9, 2014. The theme for the conference is Get in Tune with Respite, reflecting the great musical city of Nashville and challenging conference attendees to learn and share how respite can create harmony for families in caregiving situations.
Previous conferences have been very successful, and we expect no less from the 2014 conference in Nashville! The conference will offer valuable, up-to-date information for families, professionals and other stakeholders related to respite supports for caregivers. Conference keynote speakers and breakout sessions will offer a multitude of opportunities to “connect the dots” between the Lifespan Respite Care Program and other respite programs and initiatives that support caregivers. Come to Music City to join us for what we promise will be an unforgettable event!
