What is Respite Care?

Short Term Accommodation or Respite NDIS
Both the person with a physical disability and their caregiver can take a rest or change scenery. There are various options for respite, including assistance from loved ones (not paid for by NDIS), formal care funded by NDIS like center-based or paid in-home services, support like joining a community group (which can also be funded by NDIS), and temporary periods of extra personal support funded by NDIS to enable individuals to stay at home when their family or caregivers are not available.

What are the benefits to STA (emergency respite NDIS)?

You can benefit from a short trip away:
Make new friends by meeting new people
Try new activities
Enjoy a change in scenery
step outside your comfort zone
Relax and recharge
Increase your independence
Many STA providers include group activities that build capacity as part of the stay. These may include art therapy sessions or group fitness activities.
You can enjoy a break in your routine, while the informal support network has some time to themselves.
It is in your best interest to take a break with your caregiver. This will help you maintain positive relationships between family members and carers. STA can also be a good way for older caregivers to recharge and get a rest, as they may have their own health problems.
