Geelong Disability Services Short Term Accommodation (STA) – 24 Hour One to One Care Provided By Fully Qualified & Experience Support Workers.

Geelong Disability Service’s STA (short term accommodation) is designed to provide an enjoyable experience to our clients as well as providing a break for carers, giving them time to do the things they normally don’t get the opportunity to do.

Each of our STA (short term accommodation) clients are specifically matched with similar aged, like minded Support Workers who have similar interests and outlooks.

24hr Respite Care By Fully Qualified Support Workers

We provide each of our STA/Respite clients with a Roster of Supports that is specifically individualised to the client including specifically matched Support Workers, which I am sure you can understand, takes time to set-up and organise. For this reason, all new stays need to be booked in at least 2 weeks prior to arrival and return stays 1 week prior.

Whatever your STA / respite requirements maybe, contact our friendly and experienced Geelong Disability Services team today.

Our other services include – Support Coordination, Plan management, Psychosocial Recovery Coaching, Peer Mentoring, Personal Care & Community Access.

PLEASE NOTE: “We currently are unable to provide STA (short term accommodation) to those requiring wheelchair access or those with behaviours of concern”

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us here at GDS.
