NDIS Respite Care and Short Term Accommodation Provider in Melbourne

Everyone needs a break once in a while, especially if you are looking after a person with a disability. Respite care accommodations or Short Term accommodations (STA) was created to address this issue. The NDIS short term accommodation or NDIS Respite accommodation is a way to give a person with a disability or their primary caregiver a break from their normal routines.

Short Term accommodation NDIS package gives NDIS participants the chance to enjoy a stay away from their family home. It facilitates their independence and helps them meet new people and learn new skills, all while having their disability support needs met. Care can be given at a healthcare facility, or an adult day centre depending on the stay period. NDIS Respite care accommodations provide short term relief for primary caregivers. It can be arranged for just a few hours daily or over several days in Melbourne.

Short Term Accomodation Providers

The only difference between NDIS short term accommodations and NDIS Respite care accommodations is the intent with which they were started. Both services give a much-needed distance between a person with a disability and their primary care provider. This distance fosters independence in both parties and gives both of them a sort of time-out.

STA is not just a provision for NDIS accommodation to the person of disability. It also includes the following:

  • An NDIS short term accommodation provider or support worker is paired with you for your period of stay. The support provider will cater to all your disability-related needs.
  • For the period of stay, the person with a disability or their primary care provider can choose different activities to indulge in. Disability Accommodations will be provided according to your interest and chosen activities. For example, you can choose to spend time at home reading books or participate in a local camp. Your support provider will make sure that every need is met.
  • You can opt to participate and enjoy group activities with people of similar interests.
  • Staying for an entire weekend can be arranged in facilities where all your health-related needs can be easily fulfilled.

Sheltering Arms will step in as your primary caregivers and provide the support you require in addition to arranging accommodations in Melbourne.
