Remember to take care of yourself so you can better take care of others!

Respite provides caregivers of those with long term or lifelong disabilities an opportunity to have some time away from their caregiving duties.  A respite break can be as short as a few hours or as long as a couple of days or weeks.  The Panhandle Partnership Respite Program is one of six Nebraska Respite Network Sites.

The Respite Network offers information & referral services for families & potential or current respite providers.  Call your local coordinator at 308.432.8190.  To find a Respite povider close to you click here.
