What is Short Term Accommodation (STA)?
Under the NDIS, Short Term Accommodation (often referred to as STA) is temporary supported accommodation for a period of 2-6 weeks, available through the Core funding of your plan.
Short Term Accommodation funding replaces what used to be called ‘respite’ (i.e. alternative care arrangements for when carers need a break or are unable to perform their caring duties). Although it may seem a bit confusing at first, funding for respite is still available for participants and their carers, but it is now provided as ‘Short Term Accommodation and Assistance’.
BET Group homes allows NDIS participants who have access to core funding to experience time away from home in a safe and supportive environment with access to staff throughout the stay. We offer flexible short-term accommodation arrangements ranging from a week-long holiday, a weekend away each month, an overnight stay or a few hours break each week.
We freshly prepare evening meals and lunches for guests staying at our homes. Our guests absolutely love our dinner menus. And most have come back for long term stay.
Occasionally we offer a range of social, recreational and leisure activities which help to encourage inclusion in the community and provide participants with an opportunity to engage in activities that may help them work towards their goals.
