Short Term Accommodation (STA), also known as respite, enables people with a disability to experience living away from home in a supportive environment.
STA is a support that can be delivered in a group or 1:1 arrangement, where Participants are assisted to partake in social activities, access the community and develop independent skills.
Short Term Accommodation is available in both Griffith and Leeton
GPSO has established a STA facility in both the Griffith and Leeton facility and offer the provision of in-home respite if requested. Both facilities are wheelchair accessible and include bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and shared living arrangements.
STA services cater for different lengths of time, commonly 1-3 nights at the one time.
GPSO also supports Participants to access STA as a transition to long-term Supported Independent Living (SIL).
STA is a very popular service and booking in advance is essential. Please contact GPSO on (02) 6964 3199 to enquire further into available STA services.
