Short term Accommodation and Assistance (e.g. Respite care) is described as: Participants are likely to have a number of days where their support arrangements will be different. These are non-typical days and may include funding to provide replacement support, or respite, in group based facility or in home support.
Evidence from consultations to date indicates that support can generally fall into one of three levels:
Between the equivalent of 7 and 14 days per year: where the family provides support most days. This support is provided to the participant so that the informal carers can attend key activities relevant to other members of the family.
Between the equivalent of 14 and 28 days per year: where respite is a strategy to build capabilities for independence.
No more than the equivalent of 28 days per year: where the family provides support most days and informal care is at risk of not being able to be sustained due to severe behavioural issues or where the person requires intensive informal support.
These supports will be funded over a standard 24 hour period and participants or nominees will be able to choose how and when they use this funding in relation to weekdays, weekends or public holidays.
A higher level of support may also be appropriate for a defined period of time to ensure that a family or carer is able to sustain employment, complete their education or put more sustainable support arrangements in place.
There are many participants as the scheme matures that are receiving higher levels of overnight support than outlined above. Ensure you are requesting the appropriate level of overnight support that meets your or your family members disability support needs, goals and facilitates sustainable placements.
