Some families have children who have very specialized medical needs. They may qualify for Enhanced Respite Funding. This grant is paid to families who are caring for a child who is medically fragile and technologically dependent.

How would FRS be involved?
Some families wish to use the funding they receive through Enhanced Respite to develop a respite plan with FRS. FRS would administer the funds, hire a worker and provide the respite for the child and family.
