Short Term Accommodation (STA)
Short Term Accommodation (including Respite)
Our short term accommodation (including respite care) provides high quality care where participants are safe and secure. We aim to create a home away from home from the moment participants join us, with them doing the things that are most important to them. It is also a great chance for participants meet new people and try new activities.
Our accommodation options are located in the leafy outer South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, close to shops and transport. They are spacious with large lounge rooms and great outdoor areas. These spaces are ideal if friends or family visit.
We provide Integrated support for self-care, accommodation, food and activities in a group residence for short periods. Our fees include all expenses in a 24 hour period.
Features of our Short Term Accommodation include:
All our carers are highly trained to ensure participants get the personalised care they need. Our carer ratio to participants depends on the needs of our participants. We also have a carer available overnight. You can be assured that we take participant confidentiality very seriously. That’s why we have implemented procedures to safeguard your privacy. We also pride ourselves in only employing highly qualified staff members, trained staff to work with the young and youth with challenging behaviours. Our staff have also undergone Police checks and Working with Children checks.
We want to make a participant’s stay with us as enjoyable as possible. This means our activities are tailored to what they enjoy. This could be going shopping, seeing a movie, visiting a park or even enjoying playing a sport.
Spacious and Private Accommodation
For all of our participants privacy is a priority. That is why all our participants don’t share rooms, but have their own private single rooms. All our respite accommodation have at least five bedrooms, some with ensuites.
However, it is also important to have spacious living areas – especially if they have friends or family visiting. That’s why our accommodation options have at least two lounge rooms and spacious gardens.
We understand that each Participant is different. That’s why our care is led by their choices, needs and goals. We actively promote independence in a safe and non-discriminative environment.
The length of our stays can vary from overnight, weekends or a holiday. What a participant is entitled to when it comes to short term accommodation is listed in their NDIS plan
