Access Foundation provides several different accommodation types available to our participants. Different accommodation types are based upon individual requirements and the level of support that would suit you the best.
Respite is a type of accommodation service that allows a break from your regular routine. This is an alternative care type that can be put in place while you get to spend time away from standard support. Access Foundation has several houses around the Perth metro area that are used for out of home Respite accommodation and support. We provide Respite options for children and adults living with disability, as well as specialist Respite support for people living with high and complex needs.
Respite assists you to reach your goals! Whether they are to be more independent, enjoy new experiences, meet new people, take some time out of your usual daily routine, or take up a new activity.Respite can be used for a planned rest or for an emergency and can be used often or a once-off time.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is a funded accommodation support that provides housing for people that require a high level of support and modifications to suit the participant’s needs. While SIL is providing the support in the home, SDA is about providing the housing itself.
