What is short & medium-term accommodation?

STA and MTA provide a temporary break for caregivers while ensuring that their loved one receives high-quality care in a safe and comfortable environment. NDIS participants can receive respite care for up to 28 days in a year, with the option of extending the stay if needed. During the respite stay, participants have access to all the support and services they require to maintain their daily routine and achieve their goals.

Why is short & medium-term accommodation important?

Respite care provides much-needed relief to caregivers, who may be experiencing physical and emotional exhaustion from their daily responsibilities. It also enables them to take a break and recharge, which can help prevent burnout and improve the quality of care they provide. For NDIS participants, respite care can be an opportunity to experience new activities, build social connections, and develop new skills. It can also provide a change of scenery, which can be refreshing and stimulating.
