Respite Care for People Living with Acquired Brain Injury

Short-Term Accommodation (Respite)

Sometimes, carers need a break from their day-to-day responsibilities. In this situation, Short Term Accommodation (STA) steps in to provide that opportunity.  

STA offers a welcoming and stimulating environment where you can receive high-quality care and get involved with enjoyable activities. At the same time, your loved one can take a little time for themselves. STA can be a blessing for families and carers, allowing them to recharge and return to their caring role feeling rejuvenated.

The Benefits of STA for People with ABI

  • STA provides a break for carers, allowing them rest, attend appointments, or simply have a little time for themselves, effectively reducing the likelihood of burnout.
  • STA provides an exciting environment with opportunities for social interaction and new experiences, combating boredom and promoting cognitive stimulation.
  • Most importantly, STA gives carers priceless peace of mind. They can take a step back worry-free, safe in the knowledge that their loved one is receiving the same level of everyday support they’re accustomed to.

Medium-Term Accommodation

Life can be unpredictable. Perhaps you're moving home or need temporary accommodation while transitioning to a new NDIS plan. This is where medium-term accommodation (MTA) comes to the fore.  

MTA offers a comfortable and accessible living arrangement that caters to your needs for a specified period. NDIS funding can help cover the costs of medium-term accommodation, providing a flexible living solution that aligns with your needs. With MTA, transitional periods don’t need to be tricky!  

The Benefits of MTA for People with ABI

  • MTA provides a temporary housing solution during unforeseen circumstances, avoiding disruptions to your daily routines.
  • MTA allows people with ABI to maintain access to support services and familiar environments during transitions.
  • Finally, MTA minimises the stress associated with temporary housing needs, promoting that all-important sense of continuity and stability.

Supported Independent Living (SIL) Services

United For Care also offers Supported Independent Living (SIL) which is the ideal balance between independence and support. Imagine having your own home environment with friendly and qualified support workers on hand to assist as much or as little as needed. These tasks could include prepping a tasty lunch, managing your medication, or scheduling a doctor’s appointment, all while considering the specific nature of living with ABI.

The Benefits of SIL for People with Acquired Brain Injury

  • SIL provides a supportive structure that can help you feel safe and secure, allowing you to focus on your goals and daily routines.
  • Shared SIL environments offer opportunities for social interaction and connection with other people who can relate to your experiences. This can promote a fuller and more rewarding social life, while creating that amazing feeling of belonging to a vibrant community.
  • Support workers in SIL are there to empower you by understanding your specific needs, like communication or memory challenges. They'll collaborate with you to develop strategies that maximise your independence in everyday life.
  • SIL is a springboard for building independence. With the support available, you can build your confidence, self-esteem, and the toolbox of skills needed to manage your day-to-day life on your terms.  

Accessing NDIS Accommodation

To access NDIS accommodation options like SIL or SDA, you’ll first need to have an NDIS plan. This plan outlines the supports funded by the NDIS and how they can be used. It's essential to discuss your housing needs during your NDIS planning meeting to ensure that accommodation is included in your plan.

The NDIS assesses your individual needs and goals as outlined in your NDIS plan. They can provide funding for accommodation that helps you achieve your goals and live safely and independently, especially if living with ABI means you need daily support with:

  • Daily tasks like dressing, showering, or navigating your home.
  • Getting around (going to the shops, or attending an appointment, for example).

You may also need access to a home with special features your current one lacks which will boost your safety and independence.

Accommodation Considerations

When considering your accommodation options, consider the level of support needed, the proximity of the accommodation to family and local amenities, accessibility, and personal preferences about the type of environment you’ll eventually live in. The pricing for each accommodation type under the NDIS is regulated and varies depending on the support levels and location.  

What factors should I consider when choosing NDIS accommodation?

Here are some key considerations when choosing NDIS accommodation:

  • Desired level of independence: How much support do you need with daily tasks to achieve your independence goals?
  • Specific needs: Are there specific features you require, such as wider doorways, accessible bathroom facilities, or assistive technology in the home?
  • Location preferences: Where would you feel most comfortable? Consider proximity to family, friends, public transport, or essential amenities.
