Adult Respite

Westhaven provides short term accommodation in the form of respite. 
This is as a way for participants to continue to have their support needs met, when their usual supports are unable to.

To ensure the needs and preferences of each participant are met, an intake meeting is held prior  to service commencement.

Westhaven takes great pride in delivering positive and meaningful experiences to participants in our services.

We can provide planned or emergency respite to participants who require support.

NDIS Assistance

Your supports can be delivered flexibly from your core support budget under the NDIS, with a wide range of options including:

  • Choice of service delivery and times
  • In or out of home respite
  • Community participation or other activities
  • Recreational activities
  • Group respite with peers
  • Cultural activities and support
  • We can provide overnight, short term placement or daytime respite in Westhaven property with support staff.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will fund the reasonable and necessary disability supports to enable participants to engage in community life and at home.
Anyone who has a current NDIS package can contact Westhaven directly to discuss how we may support you.
If you do not have an NDIS plan please contact the NDIA and request access to start the eligibility process for the scheme.

If you are not eligible for NDIS or are waiting for a planning meeting, other options may include:
