FEN offers self-directed respite services to families who are deemed eligible. This service would require that families have a provider they would like FEN to hire to provide respite to their loved one. The provider can be another family member (but cannot live in the same home), a friend, or anyone they choose who will meet all hiring criteria needed by the agency. The family will be responsible to train the provider and manage their service delivery schedule with the provider. Interested providers and families may use the application on this website to apply to be a “Self-directed Respite Provider”.
