Referring to Montrose Short Term Accommodation

This page is designed for Support Coordinators and others who refer to NDIS Short Term Accommodation (STA). Find out everything you need to know about making a referral to Our Getaway on the Gold Coast. Clients and carers can find out more here.

Our Getaway offers NDIS short term accommodation for people over 16 with a disability. It is suitable for people looking for respite, emergency care, post-hospital stay or a holiday style break.

Who is it for?

It’s perfect for teenagers and adults living with a complex neuromuscular, congenital muscular or neurological condition who are seeking more independence and an entertaining break from their current care environment.

A stay at Our Getaway offers a chance to develop independent living skills with staff on hand to support if required.

We have supported clients who are seeking to develop their lifeskills including teens preparing to move to Supported Independent Living (SIL) accommodation as well as adults learning to live with a new or changing disability.

Modern Respite

Our Getaway offers a different respite experience in fun and welcoming accommodation. Planned placements and emergency respite are available. Wherever possible, we will accommodate urgent placements. Short term Accommodation also offers carers the chance to step away from their caring responsibilities knowing their loved one is being looked after.

Themed Breaks

We organise themed holidays throughout the year to appeal to different interests. These are a great chance for clients to participate in community activities, build on social skills and capacity and, of course, meet new people and have fun! These stays usually last one week and have included an art themed break, Girls weeks and foodies week. See this year’s list here.

Longer stays

Some clients choose to use Our Getaway for an extended break. This could be for a period of respite for both client and family. It may be post-hospital recovery time. We can design a different take on supported accommodation to provide a supportive and relaxing environment for clients to rest and recover and with a variety of activities both in centre and in the community.

What you need to know

  • A COVID-19 Safety plan is in place at Our Getaway.
  • Clients who have Short Term Accommodation in their NDIS plan can claim accommodation and care when staying at Our Getaway
  • Groups at Short Stay are usually between 4 and a maximum of 6
  • Support ratios are decided based on client needs
  • Most activities involve some out-of-pocket expense in addition to NDIS funds. This can be for eating out, entry fees, shopping etc.
  • All stays start with a discussion about everyone’s preferences so clients have a chance to shape their time with us.
