How to choose NDIS Respite Care services for the NDIS Participant

Aastha Community Services

The role of a carer can be incredibly rewarding and at the same time, an exhausting responsibility. The carers and the disabled, require a temporary break to reduce the stress and anxiety, improve their relationship, and attend to things outside of caregiving. NDIS considers the carers as an integral part of the disability support and hence promotes respite care services in Perth, Joondalup, Morely, Fremantle, Victoria Park, Canning vale, Maddington, and all-around WA


Respite Care is not explicitly mentioned in NDIS core support services, but a range of support categories could be accessed which would have a respite effect, directly or indirectly. Participants could choose informal respite care provided by a friend or a family member, or entrust the disabled individual with expert support professionals.

The service provider could also help the participants in the NDIS plan review since NDIS takes into account the kind of support required, the duration of respite care needed, and the support provided by their family and informal carers. It is also important to inform the disabled individual about the respite activity and equip the service provider with the necessary information on personal care, schedules, and emergency contact.
