NDIS Short Term Accommodation
When a person living with a disability requires temporary support from professional caregivers or in a dedicated support home, they can turn to Short Term Accommodation options to meet their needs. These accommodations provide a person with disabilities a home that can meet their support needs on a short term basis while a medium or long term solution is determined.
Whether you or your loved one experiences a disability, Maple can provide ample support services with funding from the NDIS to ensure you live your life to the fullest.
How Can Short Term Accommodation Help Someone With A Disability?
Short Term Accommodation can have several benefits. It can help someone living with a disability by introducing them to a different perspective. Spending time away from the usual routine, meeting new people, learning new skills, and immersing in a new community for a short period of time can all contribute to increasing their confidence and independence.
Whether you need to take time out from the family home, your caregiver is unavailable for a short time, or you are transitioning to Supported Independent Living, Short Term Accommodation can be a respite for both you and your family.
What is NDIS Short Term Accommodation?
Short Term Accommodation is accommodation and support for a short time away from your usual home. This can be in a private flat, a group home, or another appropriate setting that meets the needs of the individual.
The NDIS fund supports Short Term Accommodation if your usual support system isn’t available. It can also be used in order to acclimate to new circumstances, to meet new people, or to experience different types and levels of support.
