What is Respite, STA?

Respite Care NDIS

We understand that caring for a loved one with a disability can be a full-time job. That’s why we offer a range of respite services that cater to the unique needs of NDIS participants whilst providing carers with a chance to relax and recharge.

With the choice and control offered under the NDIS, participants have a greater range of services and providers offering respite to choose from. Seen as a central role to overall wellbeing by the NDIA, Respite encourages a healthy participant-carer relationship whilst creating new experiences for the participant.

Respite support can be in the form of informal care from friends or family (which is not funded by the NDIS) or formal care through paid in-home services or accommodation-based services (which is funded by the NDIS).

What is Short Term Accommodation (STA)?

Respite refers to short term, temporary accommodation (STA) arrangements for individuals with disabilities who require support for a short period. Respite is designed to meet the needs of NDIS participants who may need a break from their usual living situation, rest for their regular, informal carers, or transitional support during specific circumstances such as family events, holidays, or emergencies.

Funding is available in terms such as : 

Short Term Accommodation & Assistance

Facility or residential based stays for short periods of up to 14 days at a time

Assistance in self care overnight

In-home respite

A short stay away from home

  • Gives the participant the chance to try new things
  • Can be a place to make new friends or develop new skills
  • May help to maintain the participants current living situation by giving their informal supports a break.
  • Short Term Accommodation may suit your participants needs if their usual support network isn’t available for a short period.
