Anyone interested in meeting a crucial need by providing respite – or short-term temporary relief – for caregivers in their community can attend the upcoming REST (Respite Education & Support Tools) training course. Those who complete the unique, interactive training program become REST Companions who provide short breaks for caregivers, who are caring for individuals with a disability or healthcare needs. This allows caregivers to step away to exercise, grocery shop, see a doctor, or attend a support group meeting.The course is a $500 value and offered at no charge compliments of the State of Nevada, Aging and Disability Services Division. Continuing Education Units are also available for Nurses and Social Workers ($15 processing fee required).
