Respite & Short-Term Accommodation
Respite care is temporary, short-term care provided when family caregivers cannot care for a loved one. This is provided in case of an emergency but is primarily used as a support system for family caregivers.
Under the NDIS, short term accommodation (STA) replaces what used to be called respite for people with a disability.
This refers to transitional housing for NDIS participants who are preparing to move into a more permanent home. The NDIS funds Medium Term Accommodation for eligible participants for up to 90 days while waiting for your long term housing solution.
We work closely with referrers, participants, carers and families to match the accommodation that meets your individual needs.
Our drop-in support is person-centred and flexible. We provide a supportive environment that assists with a broad range of everyday tasks and responsibilities, whether you are living in a supported or independent accommodation. We provide services and advice including transport, shopping, education, health and conversations about relationship building, community participation and general welfare.
We help identify, develop, co-ordinate and access supports and services on behalf of you, and assist your family or guardian in accessing supports and services on their own.
Here at Your Assistive Support Co., we support you to understand and implement the funded supports in your plan and link you to the community and other government services. Our focus is on helping you to build skills and direct your life as well as connect you to providers. We will assist and guide you to make the right decisions and help you to prepare to manage it yourself the next time.
Supported Independent Living
Supported Independent Living (SIL) is an NDIS support where a person with a disability lives with other people. We provide daily support to assist you with or supervise tasks and activities that will help develop your skills and encourage you to live as independently as possible.
We provide a range of Community Access programs that are tailored to individual needs, intending to develop skills for independence, recreation and social inclusion. We make every effort to provide the best opportunities and the best care to those who participate in these programs.
Frequently, people with a disability become isolated. They are unable to attend functions, see and do new things in the community, or enjoy a conversation with a peer. Your Assistive Support Co. will help you build skills, as well as assist you with transport and accessibility so you can connect with your community. We will support you so you can participate in the community through meaningful relationships and recreation.
