Short Stays (Respite)

Take a break at a home away from home.

What are Short Stays?

Short Stays are also know as Short Term Accommodation (STA) or respite.

Short Stays are a home away from home offering fun activities and support. We have options across Tasmania and Queensland, see the locations below. In home support can also be arranged.

Where are Short Stays available?

Our Short Stays are currently available in Tasmania and Queensland only.

However, if you are looking to transition to independent living, we can partner with you to find a home that is the perfect fit for you in Victoria, Tasmania or Queensland.

Flexible stays

We’ve taken time to design each space so they feel as welcoming as home, to make sure you feel comfortable and enjoy your stay with us. You can stay for:

  • A day visit
  • One night to two weeks
  • Longer stays can be arranged, please get in touch with us to discuss.

Available for all ages

We have options for adults, adolescents and children, so you can enjoy your stay with people in a similar age group.

We take a person-centred approach, tailoring your stay to your needs and interests. We offer skill development opportunities, working with your strengths and identifying activities that help you work towards your goals.

First time with us?

You’re welcome to visit our centre to meet our team and have a look around before your stay. Please contact our Service Planners on 1800 066 066 to arrange this.
