Our Short Term Accommodation Respite (STAR) / Medium-term accommodation houses provide residential respite care.
Our service is designed to be a ‘safe place’ for people to have a break from their usual living environment. It allows the participant to rest and recharge while focusing on short-term recovery goals.
Our respite homes aim to provide:
- support you in your day to day living.
- a safe environment for you to participate in planning and decision-making processes that will enhance opportunities for your development.
- social activities, which will enable you to enhance your quality of life and participate more fully in their community.
- Support carers and care recipients transiting into NDIS.
Our respite service is designed for people with NDIS plans who are experiencing mental health concerns and need a break from their daily routines.
Our homes are staffed by experienced support staff who can assist with day-to-day living skills and recovery goals. Staff are able to provide 24-hour supervision and support negotiated at assessment.
We are not a crisis accommodation service, however we are able to provide transitional support to long term accommodation.
Our respite service is intended to complement other services for people with mental illness in the ACT and aims to work in co-operation with other services.
