 Short Term Accommodation (STA)

Short-Term Accommodation (STA) refers to a type of support that provides temporary and time-limited accommodation for NDIS participants. This service is designed to offer a break for both the participant and their usual caregivers, allowing them to experience different environments, engage in social activities, and receive necessary support during specific periods.

Key features of Short-Term Accommodation (STA) under the NDIS may include:

  1. Temporary Stay: Participants can stay in a short-term accommodation facility for a limited duration, ranging from a few days to a few weeks.

  2. Support Services: STA provides participants with necessary support services, including personal care, assistance with daily living tasks, and access to community activities.

  3. Respite for Caregivers: STA is often used as respite care, giving regular caregivers or family members the opportunity to take a break while ensuring the participant continues to receive appropriate support.

  4. Transition Support: STA can also be utilized during transitional periods, such as when a participant is moving between different living arrangements or experiencing changes in their usual caregiving arrangements.

  5. Individualized Plans: The support provided during Short-Term Accommodation is tailored to the specific needs and goals of the participant, as outlined in their individualized NDIS plan.

Scout Nursing's aim of STA is to enhance the participant's social and community engagement while providing necessary assistance in a supportive environment.
