The Munroe-Meyer Institute, through the Respite Across the Lifespan UCEDD program, was awarded a one-year opportunity grant from the Nebraska Planning Council on Developmental Disabilities. Funding for this project ran from Oct. 1, 2017, to Sept. 30, 2018. The main objective of this grant was to form a Respite Task Force made up of a broad array of stakeholders to actively collaborate to ensure that the respite needs of family caregivers across Nebraska are addressed. In this report, the Respite Task Force proposed systems-level, programmatic-level and consumer-level strategies to strengthen and improve the use of respite services, including respite to families with loved ones that have more challenging behaviors.
