The Nevada Rural Counties Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is presenting the REST Companion training in Caliente. 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 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).
