  • Respite Care for EFMP Navy Families provides much needed respite-literally a break-for families who have exceptional family members.
  • Exceptional Family Member Program Respite Care Provides 40 hours of respite care per month to eligible families at no cost to the service member.
  • Respite care is designed to give families a break and allow them to do things that are necessary, restful or for entertainment, while knowing their child is being well cared for.
