Helping Hands of Vegas Valley

A reduced feeling of caregiver stress, increased wellness and lower nursing-home placements for seniors underscore the importance of respite-care services. Helping Hands of Vegas Valley awards respite-care vouchers to the caregivers of seniors 60 years and older – so they may rest, relax and refresh from their duties. With over 400 vouchers issued each year, a waiting list of 100 clients and caregivers typically continues. These grant dollars are allocated for respite-care vouchers that will help those caregivers who are waiting to receive a much-needed break.
