NDIS Short Term Accommodation

Supported Independent Living

NDIS Short Term Accommodation Providers

When a person living with a disability requires temporary support from professional caregivers or in a dedicated support home, they can turn to Short Term Accommodation options to meet their needs. These accommodations provide a person with disabilities a home that can meet their support needs on a short term basis while a medium or long term solution is determined.

Whether you or your loved one experiences a disability, Maple can provide ample support services with funding from the NDIS to ensure you live your life to the fullest.

How Can Short Term Accommodation Help Someone With A Disability?

Disability Short Term Accommodation can have several benefits. It can help someone living with a disability by introducing them to a different perspective. Spending time away from the usual routine, meeting new people, learning new skills, and immersing in a new community for a short period of time can all contribute to increasing their confidence and independence.

Whether you need to take time out from the family home, your caregiver is unavailable for a short time, or you are transitioning to Supported Independent Living, Short Term Accommodation can be a respite for both you and your family.

What is NDIS Short Term Accommodation?

NDIS Short Term Accommodation is accommodation and support for a short time away from your usual home. This can be in a private flat, a group home, or another appropriate setting that meets the needs of the individual.

The NDIS fund supports Short Term Accommodation if your usual support system isn’t available. It can also be used in order to acclimate to new circumstances, to meet new people, or to experience different types and levels of support.

Types of short term accommodation

Short term accommodation can come in many forms depending on the needs of the NDIS individual and their carers. At Maple Community Services, we can address the circumstances of each individual and find the type of short term accommodation that best suits the situation. 

  • In-home respite – This option involves a support worker coming to the individual’s home to provide care and support. It allows a primary carer to take a break from their caregiving responsibilities while ensuring the individual’s needs are met.
  • Community-based respite – Participants can stay in a community based facility for a short period, such as a group home or respite centre. This type of short term accommodation offers participants the chance to interact with others and engage in activities in a community setting.
  • Host family respite – In this arrangement, the participant can stay with a host family for a short period who can provide the care and support that the participant needs. This can be a good way for them to experience different environments and build social connections.
  • Crisis or emergency respite – We can provide short term accommodation in a situation where the primary caregiver is unable to provide care due to an emergency or illness. We can ensure the needs of the individual are met during a crisis.

Benefits of Short Term Accommodation

NDIS Short term accommodation provides a vital source of respite care, benefitting both participants and caregivers in numerous ways. Beyond providing a much needed pause from caregiving responsibilities to alleviate stress and prevent caregiver burnout, it also creates room for self care. This allows carers to rejuvenate, ensuring they can continue to provide top-quality care without compromising their own physical and mental health. 

What’s more, short term accommodation offers participants an invaluable change of scenery. It opens doors to fresh environments, fosters social engagement and the opportunity to learn new skills. This is an experience that is not only stimulating and enjoyable but also increases their independence and enriches their overall quality of life. 

In addition to this, the ability to tap into short term accommodation at certain times throughout your NDIS plan, whether there’s an emergency or any unique need, offers invaluable peace of mind. It assures all involved parties that the level of care will remain consistent, regardless of particular circumstances that arise.
