Everyone deserves a break and the chance to explore new experiences and living environments. 

Short-Term Accommodation services (STA) offer NDIS participants safe and relaxing spaces to relax, build new skills, and gain independence. Often referred to as disability respite care, STA can help people living with disabilities and their carers have time away from their daily routines. 

A home away from home, STA services play an important role in the landscape of support for NDIS participants, fostering independence, community inclusion, and a sense of autonomy. 

Short Term Accommodation

How is Short-Term Accommodation Different from Other NDIS Accommodation Services?

Unlike longer-term or permanent NDIS accommodation services, NDIS Short-Term Accommodation is designed for temporary support and stays, providing participants with a safe and supportive environment for a short period, usually up to 14-days. STA focuses on offering respite, skill development, and social engagement opportunities and is particularly beneficial for giving both participants and their carers a much-needed break from their daily routines. 

5 Benefits of NDIS Short-Term Accommodation Services

  1. Safe and Supportive Environment: NDIS Short-Term Accommodation facilities provide a safe and supportive environment for participants to stay. Trained staff are available 24/7 to offer assistance and support, ensuring the well-being and comfort of individuals during their stay.
  2. Opportunity for Independence: STA services offer participants the opportunity to experience a sense of independence away from their usual caregivers. This experience can be empowering, allowing individuals to develop new living skills, make decisions, and build confidence in their abilities.
  3. Social Interaction and Community Engagement: Short-Term Accommodation allows participants to engage with peers and staff in a social setting. Activities and group outings promote social interaction, fostering friendships and a sense of belonging within the community.
  4. Respite for Carers: NDIS Short-Term Accommodation provides much-needed respite for carers, allowing them time to rest, recharge, and attend to their own needs. Knowing their loved ones are in a safe and supportive environment gives carers peace of mind and reduces stress.
  5. Skill Development and Learning Opportunities: STA services offer participants the chance to learn new skills and engage in activities tailored to their interests and goals. Whether it’s cooking classes, art workshops, or recreational outings, short-term accommodation fosters personal growth and development.

NDIS Short-Term Accommodation offers life-enriching benefits for participants and their carers alike.
