This resource was developed for families in Canada where Family Managed Support is a funding option, that is, funding is provided to a parent, sibling or guardian who then in turn hires staff and oversees the support of their family member with disability. It evaluates the merits of Family Managed Support and how to manage it: finding the right staff, being the "right" employer, monitoring and accountability. Although it is written for a Canadian audience, this book is a valuable planning tool for anyone considering hiring staff to support a family member.
