What is the accommodation like?

We offer two respite beds. Situated in the heart of Watsonia in Victoria, our service has easy access to the local shops, train station and nearby Greensborough Plaza. Watsonia is located 16km north-east of the Melbourne CBD.

When staying at our Plus Respite service, we offer 24/7 support, assistance with meal preparation and assistance to attend medical appointments if needed.

Our team provides a COVID-safe environment at all times. We use full Personal Protective Equipment when it’s required, conduct deep cleaning, temperature checks and other important measures to keep you and your family safe.

How do I pay?

Plus Respite service is an NDIS funded service. The NDIS will fund your visit if you have ‘Short Term Accommodation - Core Supports’ in your NDIS plan.

If this isn’t included in your current plan, we can help you prepare for your future planning conversation and even come with you if you like. Get in touch with our MS Plus team for more information.
