Taking care of yourself - is one of the best ways to help your loved ones!
Respite is help for the helpers. Respite is a break for unpaid family caregivers caring for a loved one with special needs. Respite allows the family caregiver time away to care for their personal needs. Research shows that when family caregivers take time for themselves, they improve their physical and emotional health.
You can use respsite to: Go to the grocery store, visit the doctor, have lunch with a friend, take a nap, or anything else you need or want to reduce stress.
A family caregiver is a person who provides ongoing care for an individual unable to care for themself due to age, physical or mental disability, or illness. If your loved one cannot be left alone due to a special need, we can help.
Caregiving is rewarding, but also demanding and stressful. We offer information, education, and support. We are the place to contact to discuss your respite needs.
Who provides respite? There is some flexibility in finding providers. Your local respite coordinator can assist you with finding a provider in your area. You may be able to use family members, friends, or neighbors as paid providers. Depending on funding source, other possibilities include: organizations, camps, a trusted agency, a local volunteer-led organization or group, volunteer-led school-based program, equine program, faith-based or other approved activities. While your loved one is attending an activity, you are getting a break-and that's what respite is all about!
You can locate screened respite providers at nrrs.ne.gov/respite. Click on "Find a Provider."
