Short-Term Accommodation Respite

NDIS & Short-Term Accommodation Respite Melbourne

What is Respite Care?

Respite care is about providing short-term relief for primary caregivers of NDIS participants. Depending on the needs of the caregiver, respite care can be arranged for just an afternoon, several days or even weeks. This service can be provided at home, in a healthcare facility, or at an adult day centre.

There are three kinds of respite care services that we offer at Accessibility Care in Deer Park, Caroline Springs and Sunshine:

1. Centre-based assistance and counselling care services:

Accessibility Care services are provided in professional centres where participants are cared for in a home like environment. They are offered professional counselling as well as the required medical and non-medical support.

2. Live-in care:

When the disabled person cannot be transported to a care facility but requires full-time attention from a caregiver, our live-in caregiver services come in handy. The assigned caregiver comes to stay in your home to take full responsibility for the patient.

3. Visiting care:

If all you need is someone to handle the day-to-day tasks of the disabled when you are away at work or occupied then don’t worry. We provide caregivers who visit your home regularly at a stipulated time. This allows you to step out or attend to other commitments with your mind at ease.

What is Short-Term Accommodation (STA)?

Under NDIS, Accessibility care offers Short term accommodation (STA) to participants in West Melbourne and North Melbourne. Short-term accommodation allows disabled individuals to stay at our NDIS care facilities for a stipulated time period. Whether they wish for a change of environment or need different NDIS accommodation for a few days due to other reasons, short-term accommodation is the perfect solution. During their time at one of Accessibility Care’s branches, the individual can enjoy community living and make use of the various facilities and specialised help.
