Do you provide respite care for those who dedicate their time and energy to caring for their ill or disabled loved ones? Thank you. We do too. At Nebraska Lifespan Respite Network we care for those who care for others. It is our mission to educate Nebraskans on the respite services available, as well as industry accomplishments, that make their lives as a family caregiver a little easier.
Respite offers family caregivers a temporary break from the ongoing demands of caring for their loved one. Our respite providers work closely with family caregivers to determine the best options for respite in the home or in the community. Those eligible for training as respite providers—both paid and volunteer—must be over the age of 14. However, requirements to provide paid respite vary by program or funding source.
