Short Term Accommodation NDIS Sydney

Short Term Accommodation NDIS Sydney , including respite, is funding for support and accommodation for a short time away from your usual home. Sometimes the unexpected happens. You face a sudden change in your circumstance; a crisis occurs; you come down with a serious illness that requires hospitalization; your carer needs respite or is temporarily unable to look after you. During those times, it is important to have access to safe accommodation where you receive the care you need.

Under the NDIS, Short Term Accommodation (STA) is temporary supported accommodation for a period of 2-6 weeks, available through the Core funding of your plan. Short Term Accommodation funding replaces what used to be called ‘respite’ (i.e. alternative care arrangements for when carers need a break or are unable to perform their caring duties). Although it may seem a bit confusing at first, funding for respite is still available for participants and their carers, but it is now provided as ‘Short Term Accommodation and Assistance’.

Everybody needs a break sometimes! Short-Term Accommodation (STA) is a way of providing respite care that allows both you and your carer to have a break or a change of scenery. Residential respite is now called ‘Short-Term Accommodation and Assistance’ under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).  The amount of STA funding you can receive depends on the level of support you require. While respite care is designed to give both you and your carer a break, only you can use your funding to stay in STA – your carer has to be content with a ‘staycation’!

Advantages of STA:

  • make new friends and meet new people
  • try new activities
  • enjoy a change of scenery
  • step outside your comfort zone
  • De-stress and recharge
  • increase independence

Many STA providers offer capacity-building group activities as part of your stay, such as art therapy sessions, group fitness activities, or day trips. By staying in short-term accommodation, you’re treated to a break from routine, while your informal support network gets some time for themselves. Taking a break from your carer is beneficial to both of you as it can help maintain positive family and carer relationships. STA is also a great way for older carers to get a break and recharge as they are more likely to have health issues of their own.

How does it work:

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funds ‘Short-Term Accommodation NDIS Sydney and Assistance’ under the Core Support category ‘Assistance with Daily Living’ (Category 1).  STA funding includes all basic expenses in a 24-hour period related to the service including:

  • Accommodation in suitable facility
  • Personal care and support (incl. overnight)
  • Food
  • Activities you and the provider agree to

The NDIS usually funds up to 28 days of Short Term Accommodation NDIS Sydney per year. There is some flexibility when it comes to using your allocated STA days. For example, you might want to use it two blocks of 14 days, or for one weekend a month. The amount of funding you can receive depends on the level of support you require.

Respite, also known as short-term accommodation, is also an opportunity for family or carers to take a short break from their daily routine. Respite enables people with disabilities to be independent and achieve their goals in a supported environment.
