Increasing Awareness of & Access to Caregiving Relief.
The Nevada Lifespan Respite Care Coalition’s MISSION is to support caregivers in our community by promoting awareness of, access to, coordination and advocacy for respite services in Nevada throughout the lifespan.
Chartered in 2007, and currently housed under Healthy Communities Coalition, the Nevada Lifespan Respite Care Coalition (NLRCC) is a nonprofit entity led by a Board of Directors and comprised of organizations and individuals from across Nevada’s private and public sectors, university, and state offices in the northern, rural and southern counties of the state.
NLRCC VISION: Adequate Respite Care for All
We serve as a catalyst through our ability to advocate, educate, engage community and convene partners for collective impact around a shared vision and agenda. We strive to bring awareness and acceptance of respite care as a normal experience and valued service, and that the service fits the need and choices of consumers.
Collectively, we seek ways to increase respite workers in our state to adequately meet the need in all communities. We help identify non-traditional sources for respite in target communities, such as rural communities where resources are limited. We encourage consumers to use their voice and have control over their respite choices. We also advocate for a system of respite care that covers the lifespan and specifically fills service gaps for those 18-59 years and veterans.
We meet monthly via video conference and membership is open to all who are interested.
The work we are able to do because of your donations transforms the lives of caregivers across Nevada. Their stories show that you couldn’t make a better investment.
