Have a question about Short Term Accommodation?
Under the NDIS, Short Term Accommodation, also known as respite, is a short or long stay in a residential home shared with other guests. Set in a home environment, you’ll receive support from qualified staff with your daily routines and activities as well as develop new skills, meet others, and try new things.
Short Term Accommodation provides an opportunity for carers and residents to enjoy a break from their usual routines in a supportive out of homestay environment for people with disability.
Medium term accommodation is available at our STA’s for participants requiring accommodation for a longer period while transitioning into a more permanent home.
Regardless of which Sunnyfield short term accommodation you choose for your loved one, you will find:
- 24/7 specialised staff support;
- accommodations open throughout holiday breaks and public holidays;
- fully accessible environment;
- accommodation available for children, youth and adults with disability;
- overnight stay, short stays and extended stays available;
- nutritious and balanced meals throughout the day, including breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner;
- social activities, excursions, relaxation therapies and much more.
Short Term Accommodation is NDIS funded. This funding is listed under core supports in the support category Assistance with Daily Life. We are also able to provide Short Term accommodation at Fee-for-Service based on a support ratio of 1:3.
You can stay as short or as long as you need. There are short one or two night stays available or more ongoing options that may suit your requirements. Sunnyfield’s Short Term Accommodation services can also be utilised as a transition into Supported Independent Living if you’re exploring permanent living options.
