    Sentence correction.s

    Is this sentence grammatically correct?

    To avoid such scenario, respite care services are being availed of.

    "To avoid such a scenario, respite care services are being availed of." This is possible.

    Is the underlined phrase common? Would 'are made available' be better?

    No I do not think so, ' are availed of' means ' are used' where as 'are made available' suggests respite services are available but not necessarily used.
