Short term accommodation is NDIS language for respite. This can be in your home (a support worker coming in your home supporting your loved one), or your loved one can go away for a few days. Most service providers will provide in home support if you ask them to. Below are the service providers who provide short accommodation away from home.
Anglicare can provide a range of services for people living with disability to enable their carers to take planned time away knowing that their family member or friend is supported by experienced and well-trained staff.
At Anglicare, we have experienced staff to support people with all kinds of disability, including those with complex needs.
How we provide this support will depend on your individual needs. Anglicare can provide a range of options, which may include support to participate in community activities, support in your home, or support in one of our accommodation options. We can provide support for just a few hours or 24-hour support if needed.
Anglicare is one of the few organisation who work with children under 12 years old.
