  • Respite Care and NDIS Short Term Accommodation (STA)

    At Sheltering Arms, we understand the importance of taking breaks and providing respite for both individuals with disabilities and their primary caregivers. Both participants and their caregivers can enjoy the benefits of our short term accommodation (STA) services in and around Western Suburbs Melbourne. The existence of STAs is meant to allow people with disabilities to take a break from their family home, which may offer some respite to their caregivers as well.

    At Sheltering Arms, our NDIS short term accommodation services include pairing you with the right style of accommodation and customising the stay as per your needs. As leading NDIS Short Term Accommodation providers, we ensure comfortable and accessible accommodations for our participants.

    MTA can be suitable for those requiring urgent 24 hour care and it is sponsored for up to 90 days, which mainly covers the cost of lodging. As a trusted NDIS medium term accommodation provider, we guarantee outstanding accommodations and complete support for individuals with specific needs.

  • NDIS Supported Independent Living (SIL)

    For a person with severe impairments, the most immediate need is assistance with daily life. We assist our participants in day-to-day tasks, such as showering, getting dressed, cooking meals, cleaning, and shopping to empower them to live independently. The Supported Independent Living NDIS program helps participants master essential life skills with a little help from our SIL providers.

Why NDIS is Important?

People with disabilities deserve equitable access to opportunities and need various levels of assistance to make the most of them. This is where the NDIS or National Disability Insurance Scheme comes in. The government-funded programme in Australia aims to provide support at every level to people with partial or permanent impairments. Here are five reasons why the scheme matters so much:

  • Personalised Assistance

    The NDIS disability services follow a person-centric approach, which means the support provided is tailored to the individual’s needs, goals, and aspirations.

  • Enhanced Quality of Life

    Services like NDIS short term accommodation, home care assistance, assistance with activities of daily living, and transport support are designed to help you live more independently, accomplish goals, and stay productive.

  • Increased Choices and Control

    The primary objective of the NDIS is to give people with disabilities more choices and control over the support they receive. Participants have the freedom to make decisions about the type and level of care they require.

  • Improved Economic Benefits

    The NDIS recognises the importance of economic independence and seeks to create opportunities for employment and community engagement. By facilitating access to support services that promote skill development, the NDIS strives to help people with disabilities retain their financial independence.

  • Healthy Social Engagements

    Social inclusion and connection are vital for overall well-being. The NDIS heavily promotes social inclusion by encouraging individuals to participate fully in their communities. Social engagements help people with disabilities reduce isolation or loneliness and foster meaningful connections.
