Short Term Accommodation, including respite, for NDIS participants and families The NDIS plays a crucial role in facilitating participants’ independence and quality of life by providing them with the necessary supports and services to live life on their terms. This includes providing funding for housing, and home and daily living support. At PACC, we offer a variety of housing and home support services to ensure you receive the assistance you need to live independently. What is Short Term Accommodation? The NDIS scheme defines Short Term Accommodation (STA) as a stay in a different location from your usual home for up to 14 days at a time, with a maximum of 28 days yearly covered by your plan. Benefits of Short Term Accommodation? When it comes to funding for Short Term Accommodation, the focus is on providing respite care rather than being viewed as “holiday accommodation”, and is often used for quick breaks, usually just for a few days at a time. Caring for individuals with disabilities requires a tremendous amount of love, dedication, and effort from both the NDIS participant and their families. Respite care in the form of Short Term Accommodation provides much-needed relief, allowing family members to rest, recharge, and take care of their own well-being The availability of Short Term Accommodation also offers NDIS participants a valuable opportunity to temporarily step away from their daily routines, partake in engaging experiences, meet new people, or reconnect with friends, and delve into their personal interests. Other reasons for Short Term Accommodation include allowing individuals to develop essential life skills and increase their independence through carefully selected activities and tailored support, like those offered at PACC. These experiences help contribute to the overall well-being and personal growth of the participant, which enhances their quality of life.
