Respite Sunshine Coast - Short Term Accommodation (STA)


Tailored Supported Accommodation for NDIS Participants

Our STA care options are designed to help NDIS participants take a break from their daily routines and enjoy new experiences while also providing caregivers with the peace of mind they need to take care of themselves.

We offer a range of in-home and out-of-home access respite care services in Sunshine Coast tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Let us help you take a step back and enjoy the things you love, while also ensuring that your care needs are met. 

What Is NDIS Short Term Accommodation?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) states that Short Term Accommodation (STA) is covered under NDIS funding and allows participants to be supported by someone outside their usual support network or environment while their primary carer takes a break from their usual caring responsibilities.

STA funding is an NDIS support service. The goal is to promote the well-being and positive mental health of the participant and the main carer by allowing them to spend some mutually beneficial time apart and enjoy some quality recreation or relaxation respite.

NDIS participants may choose to stay with other people or by themselves. The supported short-term accommodation funding will cover the cost of your respite care and accommodation on your respite getaway.

How Can LevelUp Independent Living Help You?

There are many NDIS short term accommodation providers and choosing the right respite services options can be complicated, if not confusing. If that’s not enough, planning a STA by yourself can be stressful and time consuming.

At LevelUp, our experienced team members in the Sunshine Coast can help you get through the STA process as efficiently as possible. Contact us at (07) 5293 9020. Or get in touch with us online to let us know how we can help you.

LevelUp Independent Living can help to remove the stress.  Our experienced team helps to organise your break from start to finish, meeting your personal preferences.
