Short Term Accommodation, including respite
People with disabilities have the opportunity to try a variety of things in life with the help of the support provided by the NDIS. When they feel the need to stay away from their current home for a brief time to learn new skills or to take a break from their normal care routine, they can rely on NDIS Short-Term Accommodation (STA). This will also benefit the carers of the participants as they can take a break from their usual duties and enjoy the respite.
Benefits of Short-Term Accommodation include:
Short Term Accommodation funding covers the cost of the personal care, diet, accommodation and support for capacity-building activities of the participant. In most cases, funding is at a group rate but participants can access individual support if it is found to be ‘reasonable and necessary at the planning meeting. The participant will have to provide evidence that they need individual support because of their disability.
