What is Respite Care?
Respite care is short-term care provided by someone other than the primary caregiver. This type of care can be provided in the home or specialized facility. It can be planned ahead of time or used in an emergency situation
Respite care can provide much-needed relief for caregivers who are facing an overload of responsibilities. It can also give caregivers a chance to rest, recharge, and care for their health and well-being. When used in emergencies, respite care can provide crucial support during a time of crisis.
What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?
In addition to respite care, we also offer SIL (Supportive Independent Living) accommodations. SIL residences are homes designed for people with disabilities who need some assistance to live independently. These homes typically have two to four bedrooms and are located in regular residential neighborhoods. Residents of SIL residences have their own private bedrooms and share common areas such as the kitchen, living room, and bathroom with the other residents.
SIL accommodations can provide a higher level of independence for people with disabilities who do not need constant supervision or care. These accommodations can also provide much-needed respite for caregivers who are facing an overload of responsibilities.
How To Access Respite Care & SIL?
You can use the core budget in your NDIS plan to access respite care and SIL accommodations. This budget can be used to cover the costs of respite care, SIL accommodations, and support services. You should consider contacting your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or Support Coordinator to help you access these services. You can also contact us directly to discuss your needs and how we can help.
