From time to time, you or your family member may require short term accommodation. This includes short stays in a group-based setting for respite that provides planned short term, time-limited breaks for children and people with a disability.
At a Centacare respite facility, our staff are committed to ensuring everyone has a positive experience by providing professional support and a ‘home away from home’. Your needs will be catered for during your stay, including activities which can be tailored to your goals.
The NDIS does not currently use the term respite, and instead refers to the support as ‘Short Term Accommodation’. If you are unsure about what is funded in your plan, please contact Centacare on 1300 236 822 and we can discuss it with you.
The NDIS funds Respite and uses some of the following terms to describe it:
- Assistance with Daily Living
- Short Term Accommodation
- Core Supports
