Here’s why NDIS short term accommodation Brisbane is great!

July 17, 2023

Submerse yourself in the buzz of one of Australia’s most vibrant cities, with our options for NDIS short-term accommodation in Brisbane. In this guide, we’re exploring what NDIS STA covers and why our clients choose Aspire Hub for their supported accommodation and short respite stays in Brisbane!

What’s NDIS STA?

According to the NDIS, Short Term Accommodation (STA) is funding for support and accommodation for a short time away from home, covering the cost of care for up to 14 days at a time. It’s suitable if you’re looking to build skills and achieve goals, and for caregivers, it’s an opportunity for respite.

To approve STA Accommodation NDIS considers whether the stay will assist the individual to complete their personal goals, help engage in the community, and whether the stay is value for money.

NDIS participants are encouraged to check their current plan to see if STA is included before planning a trip. Need help with your plan? Aspire Hub can help you utilise or even apply for an NDIS plan, get in touch with our friendly team here.

What’s included?

At Aspire Hub, we’re all about helping you achieve your goals. So, when it comes to STA, we also include personal care, food, and the activities the individual and the provider agree to. We’ll consider your needs, and we can work with you to provide additional support. So, whether it’s showering, dressing, medication management, or engaging with your community, we’re here to help you at every point of your stay.

NDIS short-term accommodation Brisbane options

Brisbane, or ‘the River City’ is a hive of activity and recently even won a spot on TIME Magazine’s list of “world’s greatest places.” Whether it’s a Footy weekend at Suncorp, a concert at the Entertainment Centre, or even a trip to the Showgrounds, Brisbane is home to a range of exciting activities. At Aspire Hub, we have a range of STA houses located in vibrant and well-connected communities, making it easier to maximise your stay and be close to amenities like public transport and restaurants.

How Aspire Hub’s accommodation can support you

18-year-old Jayden is an NDIS participant living in Aspire Hub’s new disability accommodation in Brisbane’s southwest.

“It’s a little space for me to just live in, but it’s like a 10-minute walk from the train station, and because I hated having to get either a bus or my social workers to drive me to the train station when I lived out of Ipswich it’s really convenient that it’s just a 10-minute walk up from the station,” Jayden said.

Impressed by the facilities and location, Jayden says she has everything she needs in her accommodation.

“I was like….yeah, this is going to be perfect and it has been because got my bed here, TV, air con fridge, little kitchen. I’m fine. And when I need to go out, I go out,” Jayden said.

“I realised that I was able to get that independence back.”

After reflecting on the support she receives, Jayden said she recommends Aspire Hub to other NDIS participants seeking supported accommodation in Brisbane.

“Honestly, just do it because it’s probably the best place you could be in one of these houses,” she says.

“Situations can vary of course, depending on who’s in the house and whatever. Of course. But just do it. Because all the supports there, everyone’s great and you get to deal with amazing people like Martin [Aspire Hub Service Delivery Manager].”

“I find that, that always when you have younger blokes like Martin and Jacob [Aspire Hub team leader] in these kinds of jobs, it just runs so much easier.”
