    Panhandle Worksite Wellness Council is delighted to partner with the Nebraska Lifespan Respite Network for an upcoming educational webinar presented by Kim Falk, UNMC’s Respite Employer Engagement Coordinator and Sharon Johnson, DHHS Program Coordinator:

    Friday, November 3, 2017

    10-11 am MT

    • Did you know there are over 200,000 caregivers in Nebraska?
    • How many of your employees are caregivers?
    • How could employers offer support to caregivers?

    Family caregivers play a critical role in supporting individuals who need long-term services and supports. Respite provides an opportunity for family caregivers of individuals with disabilities, chronic health conditions or who are aging to take a much-needed break to care for themselves. Research shows that when family caregivers make time for themselves, they are better caregivers and continue in the caregiving role.

    As the baby-boomer population ages, employers will see an impact of caregivers who are not able to stay in the work-force due to caregiving responsibilities. Assisting your employees in finding Respite to get a break from caregiving, may enable them to live a more balanced life and be focused and reliable employees.

    There are a variety of respite resources available to Nebraska businesses and we are excited to share.  There is no cost to participate in this webinar.

    Adding just a few simple habits to your routine and practicing them daily, can impact your feelings of well-being exponentially. At no time of the year is balancing this equation more important than during the holidays. It All Adds Up inspires you and your teammates to practice three vital strategies for maintaining balance fostering well-being during the holiday season. 

    • Sleep: Accumulate 6-8 hours of sleep daily and go to bed within 30 minutes of your typical bedtime. 
    • Physical Activity: Complete 15 minutes of physical activity daily. 
    • Relaxation: Practice 15 continuous minutes of calming activity such as reading, listening to music, stretching, or any activity which produces feelings of relaxation. 
    The Goal: Teams will work towards earning points together to get an average of 6,000 points by the end of the challenge. Along the way you can unwrap challenge gifts at every 1,000 points. 

    Important Dates: 
    Businesses who want to participate can contact Melissa Cervantes, mcervantes@pphd.org, by October 19th to get registered. Individuals won't need to be confirmed until later. 
    The registration link will be sent out to each business point-of-contact on November 6th and that can be sent out to any interested individual to begin registration. Registration will be open until November 26th. 
    The challenge is six weeks and will begin officially on November 20th and end December 31st. 

    Price is $3.00 per employee.
