How does it work?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funds ‘Short-Term Accommodation and Assistance’ (STA). STA funding includes all basic expenses in a 24-hour period related to the service including:

  • Accommodation in a suitable facility
  • Personal care and support (including overnight)
  • Food
  • Activities you and the provider agree to

The NDIS usually funds up to 28 days of STA's per year. There is some flexibility when it comes to using your allocated STA days. For example, you might want to use it in two blocks of 14 days, or for one weekend a month. The amount of funding you can receive depends on the level of support you require.


Benefits of Short Term Accommodation (STA)

Short-Term Accommodation stays in NDIS approved accommodation services are one of the most popular options among participants and have gained immense popularity in recent times because of the following advantages:

  • Respite care: Short-Term Accommodation that works as respite care offers your family and/or carers a well-deserved break while you are in safe hands with people who are exceptional at taking care of people living with disabilities.
  • Mental health: Leading a boring lifestyle by staying in the same place for years on end is always disadvantageous when it comes to mental health. Spending some quality time in a completely new place, meeting new faces, and learning new skills refreshes your mind and results in good mental health.
  • Health support: Short-Term Accommodation can provide access to specialised equipment, aids, and health services, such as Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, and Nursing care, which can help people with disabilities maintain or improve their health and wellbeing.
