Frequently asked questions

Respite care is designed to give both NDIS participants and their informal support a well-earned break.

Repsite care, or Short Term Accommodation, is an opportunity to experience a change in scenery, and a break from your routine. Additionally, it allows your informal support network to have some time to themselves.

In addition to accommodation, respite care includes the supports you receive during your stay. At Alliance Care, our cottages provide:

  • Care by qualified Support Workers
  • Delivery of High Intensity Supports by Registered Nurses
  • Travel & Transportation
  • In house capacity building activities
  • Innovative Community Participation opportunities
  • Day trips and more….

The NDIS funds STA under the Core Support category ‘Assistance with Daily Living’ (Category 1).

The amount of funding you can receive depends on the level of support you require. Generally, the more support your informal network or carer provide, the more breaks they may need throughout the year and the more funding for STA you’ll receive.

If you have any queries around respite care funding, please contact us today and our helpful and knowledgeable staff will be happy to assist.
