2. Short Term Accommodation (STA/Respite)

We recognize the significance of providing respite and support for young people in out-of-home care. Our Short Term Accommodation services are meticulously tailored to address the distinct needs of two groups: those over 18 seeking a holiday experience and those under 18 where we provide you, the dedicated carers, with a well-deserved break while maintaining consistency and mirroring their home life for the young individuals.

For those over 18, looking to have a holiday experience, our Short Term Accommodation offers an opportunity to immerse themselves in comfortable surroundings, breathtaking sceneries, and an array of engaging activities. Our team is dedicated to addressing personal care needs and ensuring delightful meals during the stay. Whether opting for shared experiences or solitary moments, the experience revolves around their individual preferences.

However, we understand that for those under 18, maintaining consistency and a sense of home is crucial. Our Short Term Accommodation is designed to resemble their typical home life, ensuring that their expectations aren’t disrupted during their stay and that their needs are met comprehensively. This thoughtful approach guarantees that they return home with the same sense of familiarity and routine.

Additionally, this respite isn’t solely about relaxation—it opens doors to new experiences and personal growth. Young individuals will have the chance to connect with peers, boosting their self-confidence and fostering independence outside their regular family or carer support. It’s a time for them to recharge, embrace activities tailored to their interests, and build lasting memories and connections.

Moreover, our Short Term Accommodation offers not only a much-needed break for the young individuals but also a valuable opportunity for you, their dedicated carers. It enables you to recharge, step away temporarily, and return with renewed energy to provide unwavering support. With the NDIS supporting up to 28 days of short-term accommodation, there’s flexibility to enjoy a weekend retreat or extend the stay for several weeks.

We are delighted to welcome young individuals to Sanctuary and offer them the respite they deserve. Our team is committed to ensuring their comfort, well-being, and enjoyment throughout their stay. This is their chance to unwind, explore new horizons, and create cherished memories. We’re eagerly awaiting the opportunity to meet them and provide an exceptional experience.
