Curious about Short Term Accommodation?

At some point, everyone needs to take a moment to recharge. Here at Songbird, we’re excited to be able to offer Short Term Accommodation for participants. Short Term Accommodation is provided under the NDIS for participants in the scheme, covering the cost of care and accommodation for up to 14 days at a time. It is often funded when your usual carers aren’t available, or simply for when it’s time to try new things.

What is Short Term Accommodation? 

Short Term Accommodation is an option for NDIS participants to get away comfortably, with all the supports and tools put in place for you to be able to rest easily. At Songbird, we see Short Term Accommodation as a home away from home, offering participants a place to access important downtime while still feeling supported and safe. 

The Songbird Difference

A priority in everything we practice at Songbird, we believe in clear and collaborative communication between all engaged supports creates the best results for our participants. Our approach to Short Term Accommodation reflects this value, taking the additional effort to collaborate with our participants and their supports to get the most out of their experience throughout their stay. Our Short Term Accommodation runs year-round and is approved to provide care to those under 18 years of age as a dedication of Songbird to provide equal opportunities of care and support to all. 

Some key features of our NDIS approved Short Term Accommodation include:

  • 3 spacious bedrooms – 2 bedrooms with built-in ceiling hoist
