How do I hire respite support for my loved one? 

With self-directed services, you and your loved one have the right to live the life you choose. Everyone’s situation is different. For some, self-direction means the ability to receive services and support from a loved one. For others, it’s supporting parents so their children with disabilities get the care they need.  

In Nevada, we help you self-direct your respite employee. This means that you can hire someone you trust to support your loved one when you’re traveling or taking time away.  

You deserve to live the life you choose. GT is here to make that easier.

How GT Independence Can Help You

GT Independence is a fiscal employer agent (FEA). This means that you decide who provides the respite care for your loved one—and we handle the details. For example, you hire employees you know and trust. We support you by taking care of all the necessary paperwork, such as timesheets, paychecks, and payroll taxes. 

At GT, we believe everyone should be able to decide who supports you and your loved ones. GT is here to help you learn about how self-directed respite care works in Nevada, so you have the information to decide what is best for you and the people you love.
