Service Description

Respite is support for when you need domestic or self care assistance in home for a short period where your carer is unable to and or they are needing a break from their caring duties. Sometimes a short stay away from home can: - give you the chance to try new things - can be a place to make new friends or develop new skills - may help to maintain your current living situation by giving your informal supports a break. - Short Term Accommodation may suit your needs if your usual support network isn’t available for a short period.  Short Term Respite and Hosting can include: - Personal care - Accommodation - Food - Activities you and the provider agree to - 24 hour Care - 24 hour Peer Support / Mental Health Practitioners - The support will assist you to pursue your goals in your plan. - The support will assist you to undertake activities, to facilitate your social and economic participation. - The support represents value for money in that the costs of the support are reasonable relative to both the benefits achieved and the cost of alternative support. We support up to 28 days of Short-Term Respite per year. You can use your Short-Term Accommodation funding flexibly. For example, you might want to use it in a block of up to 14 days at a time or for one weekend a month. We fund standard rates for Short Term Accommodation. You can find the rates in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits. If you already have funding in your Core budget, you can use this for Short Term Accommodation & Respite. You can choose to use your Core budget on a range of supports like Short Term Accommodation to suit your needs. You should think about the best way to use your budget to pursue the goals in your plan.
