Under the NDIS, Short Term Accommodation (STA) is a place to stay when you need to live out of home for a short period of time. This includes respite care while your usual carer takes a break.
A short stay away from home—in a safe and supported environment—has many benefits for NDIS participants and their loved ones. Staying somewhere temporarily can provide you with:
- an opportunity to try new activities and find a new passion in life
- a friendly environment where you can socialise and make new friends
- assistance to make living in the community more sustainable
- a chance for your usual support network to take a break for holidays, work or appointments
- a chance to learn new skills and increase your capacity for independence
- somewhere safe to stay if your usual carer is unavailable for a short period of time
Under the NDIS, STA can be included in your plan, and includes accommodation, personal care, meals, and activities agreed on by you and your accommodation provider. Short Term Accommodation usually funded for up to 28 days per year, and you can use this flexibly to suit your schedule. For example, you could use it all in one go, or up to 14 days at a time for NDIS holiday accommodation throughout the year. Or you might want to use one weekend a month as a chance to get away from your usual home for a while.
