Welcome to Nebraska Lifespan Respite Network. We care for those who care for others. Respite care, planned or emergency, is the provision of short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members with special needs.

Family caregivers are often referred to as the backbone of America’s long-term care system. A 2009 study estimated that 65.7 million people in nearly 32% of U.S. households acted as unpaid family caregivers.  Respite care offers individuals or family members temporary relief from the daily routine and stress that can come with providing ongoing care. Respite can play a critical role in strengthening family stability and maintaining the health of the family caregiver.
