Short Stay and Respite

Short-term accommodation for people with disability.

Visitors at Emma Ruby House

We provide short stay and respite accommodation options for people with disability to take an enjoyable break from routine home life and the regular environment of day to day living.

We have a diverse range of Short Term Accommodation (STA) options within NSW and the ACT with accommodation focusing on providing a fun break in a safe and supervised environment supported by friendly and well-trained staff. Our breaks offer individually tailored opportunities to develop skills as well as fun activities and community outings. Our passionate and professional staff are well practiced to cater for all personal requirements to ensure an inclusive and supported stay.
