Respite Care State Factsheets

The ARCH National Respite Network and Resource Center has released a compendium of State factsheets highlighting key activities and programs of State Respite Coalitions affiliated with ARCH. These State coalitions are mandated partners in the operation of the Lifespan Respite Care Program, which is funded by the Administration for Community Living, Administration on Aging, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Available for 31 States and the District of Columbia, each factsheet identifies the unique aspects of State coalitions, including their involvement with their State's Lifespan Respite program, if applicable. The factsheets cover topic areas such as:

  • Structure
  • Staff
  • Funding
  • Membership
  • Meetings and Communication
  • Major Activities

Although there are significant differences among States, nearly all State coalitions have an advocacy component, as well as a focus on networking, research, and public awareness. Additional documents and State contact information are also provided. 

The compendium was designed to promote information sharing among State respite coalitions; national, State, and local agencies; and legislators and administrators. 

ARCH State Respite Coalitions: A Compendium of Fact Sheets is available on the ARCH website:
