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.

Families may be eligible for up to $3,500 per child, per year.

Who is eligible? The child must:

  • be 18 years of age and under
  • live at home

For more information contact:
Community Care Access Center (CCAC) - 519-258-8211 or 1-888-447-4468

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.
