NDIS Short-Term Accommodation

The Top 5 Benefits of NDIS Short-Term Accommodation

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for people with disabilities, their families and carers. One of the ways it does this is through NDIS Short-Term Accommodation (STA).

STA is designed to provide support for people with disabilities who need a safe and supported environment for a short period of time. The length of stay can be anywhere from a few days to several months.

There are a number of benefits of STA, which include:

1. Boosting independence::

STA can help people gain more independence by giving them the opportunity to try new things or experience life outside their own homes. For example, they may be able to try out being independent while staying at someone else’s house or in an accommodation service provider’s facility.

2. Gain new skills:

STA services can help participants gain new skills through training programs, group activities and work placements within the community.

These skills are designed to improve independence and social confidence and enhance the quality of life for participants. Some examples of this include learning how to cook meals for yourself or cleaning your home independently.

3. Improve health and well-being:

People who live in respite accommodation NDIS generally have more independence, better mental health and less social isolation than those living in long-term residential care.

They also have greater opportunities to engage with their community and enjoy social activities. This can lead to improved physical health outcomes such as lower blood pressure, reduced heart rate and improved sleep quality.

4. Impact on mobility:

STA can help improve mobility by providing support to help people move around their homes safely and independently. This may include helping them get up from their bed or showering them daily. Some services also support clients who have walking difficulties due to balance issues or other mobility impairments.

5. Supporting family:

If you or your family member has been diagnosed with a disability and requires support, then STA is ideal for providing that much-needed assistance.

It allows you the opportunity to get back on your feet and adjust to having someone new in your life without having to worry about where they’ll sleep or how they’ll be fed. This can benefit both you and your loved one by giving you time to adjust before moving into longer-term accommodation like an NDIS package or home care package.
