According to the National Family Caregiving Alliance there are 219,000 family caregivers living in Nebraska. Caring for a loved one with special needs often takes a physical and emotional toll on caregivers. That is why Hastings Respite Care and the Nebraska LIfespan Respite Networkd are working together to assist families with a well deserved break. The Free Training is for individuals interested in providing in-home care to families with special needs members and the elderly. Caregivers caring for a loved one with special needs are also invited to attend. Once trained, respite providers will be matched with these special needs families. Providers can set their own wages and hours. Respite providers are needed in Adams, Clay, Webster and Nuckolls counties.
