Short term accommodation

Tailored, flexible respite options for individuals and families

We provide specialist short term accommodation options for adults, young people and children with disability throughout Victoria.

It can take many forms, but essentially it is time-out: a short interval for those who need care and those who give it, so each can have a break from the other, their routine and their surroundings. Our short term accommodation options also provide opportunities for new and different experiences.

Some benefits are:

  • Meeting new people and making new friends
  • Trying new activities
  • Trying new ways of doing things
  • Branching out a little and achieving some independence

It is an individual thing – what works for one family might not work for another. Here are some of the options we provide:

Flexible short term options

  1. One on one short term care where you are paired up with a support worker for an agreed time that suits your particular needs. This time can be spent in your home or out in the community participating in local activities of interest.
  2. Group short term options that works by matching your needs with other clients who may have similar needs and interests and enjoy participating in a group respite activity.
  3. Facility based options. This is where we match your needs and interests in one of our shared short term accommodation facilities.
