Short Term Accommodation & Assistance (STAA), Crisis Accommodation & Medium Term Accommodation (MTA)

Short Term Accommodation (Respite) - Funding for support and accommodation for a short time away from your usual home. It covers the cost of your care in another place for up to 14 days at a time. You might have a short stay with other people, or by yourself. It’s often funded when your usual carers aren’t available, or for you to try new things.
Crisis / Emergency Respite -
Such as: a change in circumstances, or a crisis situation that puts the person at risk of harming themselves or others, or being harmed. This may extend to a situation where a person is unable to care for themselves.
Medium Term Accommodation - Somewhere to live if you can't move into your long term home because your disability supports aren't ready. To be eligible, you must have a home you’ll move into and you need somewhere else to live in the medium-term. Funding is usually for up to 90 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of support does the NDIS cover?

In general, the NDIS will fund reasonable and necessary supports that help a person living with a disability enjoy an ordinary life - Read more here: https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/how-apply/information-gps-and-health-professionals/supports-faq

Are the Disability Support Pension and the NDIS linked?

The Disability Support Pension along with other income supports and payments such as the Carer Payment, Carer Supplement, Carer Allowance and Child Disability Assistance Payment are entirely separate to the NDIS.These payments will not be affected if a patient qualifies for NDIS funding (the exception to this is the Mobility Allowance from Centrelink, which may be replaced if your patient’s NDIS plan includes transport-related funded supports).It’s important to note that someone who is receiving the Disability Support Pension is not automatically eligible for NDIS funding and supports - Read more here - https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/how-apply/information-gps-and-health-professionals/supports-faq
