Short Term Accommodation (STA)
Looking For Short Term Accommodation?
We understand that the need for short term care can arise suddenly and for a range of reasons.
Our Short Term Accommodation services are a quality respite program where your loved one will be looked after in a comfortable and relaxed environment. Both of our services offer the perfect home away from home for your loved one to enjoy a break away from where they normally live.
Our Short-Term Accommodation (STA) provides planned respite for families or carers who care for a person with disability. Both our respite houses offer activities that are fun, offer opportunities to make friends and enjoy community outings. We work closely with families and carers over time to build relationships so when clients access our respite services they do so with ease.
