Respite

Respite care gives you the chance to recharge and look after yourself​​.​
It can help you maintain your current living situation by giving you and your informal supports a short break and by doing so strengthen and maintain the family/ carer relationship.
 
A lot of people assume when it comes to Respite, it is a service just for the carers. Respite is also a service for you! It also can be a great way for you to grow your independence, build relationships and try new things.
 
When it comes to young adults and adults with disability, going from living at home to living independently can often be a long journey. Respite gives you the opportunity to work towards achieving your home and living goals.

Funding supports

Whilst currently there is no ‘Respite’ item specifically listed under National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Respite is available and can be described as Short-Term Accommodation (STA) and assistance.

NDIS funds STA under the Core Support category ‘Assistance with Daily Living’ (Category 1), allowing you more flexibility in the way you use them.
