Self-Care Tip for the Caregiver 

Seek Respite Services: Respite means "time off." Respite can be provided by a friend, family member, or by a service in the community. It can be enough time for you to take a nap, go to lunch with friends, or even enough time to go on vacation.  

For more self-care tips, please refer to your Washoe Caregivers Guidebook or visit our website,
