Alzheimer’s Association
Respite Care

Everyone needs a break.┬áRespite care provides caregivers a temporary rest from care giving, while the person with Alzheimer’s continues to receive care in a safe environment. Using respite services can support and strengthen your ability to be a caregiver.

Respite care can provide:

 

  • A chance to spend time with other friends and family, or to just relax
  • Time to take care of errands such as shopping, exercising, getting a haircut or going to the doctor
  • Comfort and peace of mind knowing that the person with dementia is spending time with another caring individual.

 

Respite Care Vouchers for Las Vegas Valley
The HHOVV respite voucher program is funded by the state Aging and Disabled Services Division and provides temporary relief for caregivers. Individuals who do not take time off while caring for a loved one may compromise their physical and mental well-being. Utilizing respite services is one way to reduce stress, allowing individuals to be more effective caregivers. Also, using respite services may delay early institutionalization of a senior loved one.
