Short Term Accommodation

YMCA of Bundaberg offers a variety of respite services to meet the needs of people with a disability, their families and/or carers.

Clients use our Short Term Accommodation (STA) services for a variety of reasons from emergency care through to planned holidays. STA provides respite to both client and carer, so it can maintain informal networks for as long as necessary.

We can provide respite either in the home or in specified accommodation. Accommodation options may include (depending on the wishes of the family or client);

  • Motel
  • Resort
  • Airbnb
  • Holiday home

Adults & Children

When group respite is being provided in shared accommodation, appropriate and similar age groups will be adhered to unless requested otherwise.

Emergency Respite

Sometimes circumstances mean that accommodation and/or support is required at short notice.

We can assist when there is a situation that arises such as:

  • Carer work commitments
  • Carer falling ill
  • Out of town medical appointments
  • Home life circumstances changing

Vacation Respite

The Community Inclusion Services team can assist in planning your holiday.

Holiday bookings may include:

  • Accommodation
  • Transport to and within the holiday
  • Meals during the holiday
  • Activities during the holiday

Holiday respite is a great way to explore and participate in activities and experiences outside of your normal daily life. We can provide individual and group respite.
