Short Break Accommodation


Our 24/7 Short Break Accommodation service allows persons with disabilities, chronic and terminal illness to live comfortably outside of the home. This service provides participants with a new environment and a sense of independence, and enables the families to enjoy time in their own home without the constraints of constant care.


Short Break Accommodation is an NDIS funded service. If you’re eligible for the NDIS, you can speak to your planner about including it in your plan. If you’re eligible, it won’t cost you anything.
