BISMARCK — The North Dakota Department of Human Services will be holding a webinar on respite services on Thursday, March 10.

The webinar, which is a part of the department's Adult and Aging Services Division, will focus on ways caregivers can take short breaks from their work.

The program will be held from noon to 12:30 p.m. and will be a part of the next Spotlight on Home and Community-Based Services webinar.

Presenters will discuss the importance of caregivers taking care of themselves and some of the respite options offered in North Dakota. Webinar participants will also learn general eligibility requirements, how respite services are funded and how to access respite services to support caregivers.

The Adult and Aging Services Division works with partners to help older adults and adults with physical disabilities remain living in their homes and communities. It also acts to protect the health, safety, welfare and rights of long-term care residents and vulnerable adults living in the community.
