Taking a a break from the normal routine can benefit people with disabilities in more ways than they can imagine. Not only will it give them the opportunity to try new things but a short stay away from home can help them socialize more, develop new hobbies and learn new skills. Most importantly, through NDIS-funded supports like Short Term Accommodation, participants can provide brief respite to their caregivers. The carers need to take a break from their caring role so that they can avoid burnout and be more productive when they resume their duty. Both the participants and their carers can find a good balance in life and boost their morale through NDIS Short-Term Accommodation, including respite support.
NDIS Short-Term Accommodation covers the cost of personal care, food, accommodation and assistance for certain skill-building or community activities that the participants want to partake in. The NDIS funds up to 28 days of Short-Term Accommodation annually. The participants can use it in intervals of 14 days at a time or for one weekend a month. Unless your disability demands individual support and attention, you have to share your supports with other participants who are eligible for Short-Term Accommodation. Through a registered NDIS service provider, participants can find respite accommodations that they like and access all the necessary supports.
Classy Life is dedicated to providing a safe experience for the participants when it comes to their stay away from home. Our staff will be available for assistance around the clock and you can communicate any of your needs to them. In case you don’t want to stay at a different accommodation, we can also support you in your home so that your carers can experience respite. Contact us today to find out how we can help you.
