More Information

Short Term Accommodation (STA), as a vital component of your NDIS Plan, is classified under Core Supports. STA serves as a temporary sanctuary that not only offers lodging but also the necessary support to allow you to recharge and recuperate. This support encompasses the financial coverage for care services outside your home and the comprehensive assistance needed during your time away. STA’s support can significantly boost your independence and foster the development of new skills.

If you ever need to adjust or modify your medication regimen (with your physician’s consent), our medical doctor and support staff are readily available to oversee and facilitate your transition. We are dedicated to working in close collaboration with you, your Local Area Coordinator, Support Coordinator, or Plan nominee to meticulously plan your Short-Term Accommodation (STA) experience. Your well-being and comfort rank highest on our list of priorities at Gunnebah.

If you’re also seeking assistance with addiction recovery alongside your respite care, we are here to customize a program that addresses both your respite and addiction recovery needs. By doing so, you’ll have access to our group therapy program as well as one on one addiction therapy sessions, enabling you to work on your addiction recovery journey while benefiting from the respite services we offer. Your overall well-being is our utmost concern, and we are fully committed to crafting a program that perfectly aligns with your unique requirements.
