Respite care is designed to provide short periods of rest and relaxation to the caregivers of Exceptional Family Members (EFM’s) with significant needs. EFMP enrolled families, who are determined eligible to receive respite care by Headquarters Marine Corps EFMP, are able to receive reimbursement for up to 20 hours per month of respite care, not to exceed 6 hours per day, which is time designated for leisure. EFM’s eligible to utilize respite care are determined by Headquarters Marine Corps EFMP. Respite care cannot be used for preschool, seeking or working a job, medical appointments, transportation, house cleaning, therapeutic camps or attending college.
Care is provided by the skilled care provider of your choice. Care may be provided in your home or community agency. Eligible families must provide proof of respite care provider's skill level to the EFMP office priot to utilizing care.
Payment amounts are determined by the installation EFMP Manager based on the level of care needed for each child.
For more information on respite care, contact the EFMP Office at (928) 269-2949.
