Short Term Stays with Strength Potential


What is Short Term Accommodation (STA)?

Short Term Respite Accommodation is a service available to NDIS participants as part of their NDIS plans. The duration of the stay is flexible, typically ranging from 2 to 14 nights. It may occur at any of the numerous accommodation sites located on the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast, and beyond. The choice ultimately depends on your specific needs and preferences.

During the stay a Strength Potential Mentor/Support Worker will provide 24 hour 1 on 1 care and support for your child or young adult. Depending on your young person’s needs and goals, a range of activities can be undertaken from learning independence and life skills such as cooking, food shopping and budgeting to more advanced tutoring for school or assistance with getting ‘job ready’ if desired. However many young people, like their parent/guardian, just need a break from the stress of life and want time to wind down and rest. Strength Potential STA can cater to all these differing requirements, and will work with you to ensure the stay is catered to suit your needs.
