As our 9th most searched for NDIS support in 2016, respite can be an important part of your NDIS plan. Depending on your needs and goals, respite can provide a short term supported environment to help bridge a gap when the necessary supports aren’t available at home.
For many carers, respite is also important as it provides an opportunity to recharge. This break can be vital in ensuring that carers can continue to provide the key supports necessary to maintain the home life.
Like accommodation, there is a growing need for more tailored respite to meet the diverse needs of people with disability. As the NDIS brings more consumer control to respite funding, there is an opportunity for great providers who listen to people with disability and create respite services that meet their needs.
