FPCS & Respite

Family Person-Centered Support

Family Person-Centered Support (FPCS) consists of training and/or support activities that enable the member to live and inclusively participate in their community. Family Person-Centered Support is provided only by family members or Specialized Family Care Providers living in the home with the member.
FPCS activities are designed to increase the acquisition of skills and appropriate behavior that are necessary for the member to have greater independence and personal choice, and to allow for maximum inclusion into their community.
Family Person-Centered Support may be used to assist with the acquisition, retention, and/or improvement of the following areas of functionality: 
• Self-care;
• Receptive or expressive language;
• Learning;
• Mobility;
• Self-direction; and
• Capacity for Independent Living.

Respite services are designed to provide temporary substitute care normally provided by a family member or a specialized family care provider. The services are to be used for relief of the primary caregiver(s) to help prevent the breakdown of the primary caregiver(s) due to the physical burden and emotional stress of providing continuous support and care to the dependent member.
Respite services consist of temporary care services for an individual who cannot provide for all of their own needs.
Respite Services may be used to:
• Allow the primary care giver to have planned time from the caretaker role;
• Provide assistance to the primary caregiver in crisis and emergency situations;
• Ensure the physical and/or emotional well-being of the primary caregiver by temporarily relieving them of the responsibility of providing care; and
• Support the member while the primary caregiver works outside the home. 
Mileage may be reimbursed for certain transportation services, such as:
• To and from the member’s home, licensed I/DD Waiver Facility-Based Day Habilitation Program, pre-vocational centers, job development activities or supported employment activities, or to the site of a planned activity or service which is based n need and outlined on the IPP. addressed on the IPP and based on assessed need identified on the annual functional assessment.
• Transportation may be billed concurrently with person-centered support services, respite, supported employment, and all day services.
