In Home Respite

Samy Care can support you to stay in your own by providing staff to come and stay with you for the period you need our help and support.

We are here to help and support you to design, match individual needs which may include:

  • Weekdays
  • Weekends
  • Overnight
  • 24 hours care

Alternative to Traditional Respite (Holiday Program)

Samy Care Services does things differently, we want your respite to be a trip to enjoy, relax and be part of your memory. We will meet with you, listen to your interests and chat about some possible activities and places you would like to visit and explore. During our initial meeting we will conduct and assessment to gather all the essential information, such as your support requirements, medications management as well as your daily routine.

It can be nervous for some people. Never mind, we will help you and organise the meet and greet with the support staff as well as the other participant that will be going to the same trip. This will help you to build a connection with your support staff and feeling comfortable.

We will have an organised itinerary during the trip, so you know exactly what is happening and on which day. Don’t forget to keep an eye on our website

2023 holiday brochure will be out soon, and this can be checked on our website. Give us a call on 02 62426198 to discuss how we can help organise your respite.

How is your respite funded?

Please note NDIS DOES NOT FUND holidays but the supports that underpin them can be. These types of supports fall under Short Term. Accommodation (Respite) Line Item. 

The NDIS price guide defines the Short-Term Accommodation line item as “Integrated support for self-care, accommodation, food and activities in a centre or group residence for short periods.

This line item can be used flexibly over the period of 24 hours to provide accommodation, food and negotiated activities over a short period of time. A portion of that can be funded for accommodation.
