Have a child with disabilities and need time for self-care?

Caregiving can be demanding. Getting respite care is important for your health and for your ability to continue to care for your loved one.

Respite care provides relief for the family caregiver, whether it is for a few hours, a few days, or a week. Take care of yourself! Your first call should be to a respite coordinator at 1-866-RESPITE (1-866-737-7483).

Finding funds for respite care isn’t always easy. Nebraska Lifespan Respite Network has put together a guide to help sort out some possible funding sources for you.
