NDIS: Respite and STA (Short Term Accommodation)
At the Hermitage Centre we offer a range of STA and respite programs made to meet the needs of each individual.
Respite falls under NDIS accepted funding. The Hermitage Centre offers respite for all NDIS members in relaxing, homestead style-accommodation. We provide 24 hour support and care, with chef-prepared meals, your own bathroom and private balcony. You are welcome to bring your personal carer if you prefer. Our respite activities include music, art and exercise onsite. Offsite activities include yoga, massage and acupuncture. We also offer recreational outings such as walking, golf, bowling, hiking, sailing, surfing etc.
Short Term Accommodation (STA) will appear in your NDIS Plan under Core Supports. STA provides support and accommodation for a short period to help you and your carers rest and recover. This covers the cost of care outside your home and all the support you need during your time away from home. Support from STA can significantly increase your independence or help you learn new skills.
Accommodation is only one part of STA and respite. The cost of your care, food and activities are all covered. We have qualified counsellors each day offering 1:1 counselling as part of your stay.
If you need to reduce or change your medication (with your doctor’s permission), our trained nursing staff and support workers can supervise your transition. We can collaborate with you and your Local Area Coordinator, Support Coordinator or Plan nominee to plan your Short-Term Accommodation (STA).
