What Is Respite Care?
Everyone needs a break once in a while, and respite care allows that without neglecting the participant’s health. You can have someone take care of your loved one while you spend some time alone, or you can also organise their stay in care homes with all the necessary support. Respite care can last a few hours or a few days, depending on how much time you need. You can go on a holiday and refresh your mind, or you can just take a walk and come back. How much rest the carer needs is completely up to him.
Short Term Accommodation
The participants can choose to live alone or with other people; NDIS bears the cost of living for 14 days and provides the necessary support while the carer is unavailable for some time. Respite care is known by many different names, and you won’t find this under NDIS guidelines; that is because it is known by the name short-term accommodation under NDIS.

Why Respite Care Is Necessary For The Carers?
We know that you care for your loved one and that’s great. At the same time, there is nothing wrong with saying that you are tired. Taking time off is essential for everyone; after all, we are all humans and need rest to recharge ourselves. If you think this might be hurtful for your loved one to hear, have a conversation with them and explain how you feel and what you want. Your feelings as an individual are separate to those as a carer and not the same as what you feel for your loved one.
A break can give you a fresh mind which is healthy for you and your loved one. Taking care of yourself means that you can give your best in all your duties. Additionally, we are sure that your loved one will have many stories to tell you about their stay at the short-term accommodation.
