Short Term Accommodation (Respite)

Your chance to take a break. 


Short Term Accommodation (STA)

Short Term Accommodation (STA) is sometimes called respite, or respite care service. It’s your chance to take a break from everyday life, have fun, meet new people and expand your horizons.

Cara offers STA across in Adelaide, the suburbs and across regional South Australia in, Port Augusta, Port Lincoln and Port Pirie. We have comfortable, family-style homes with safe and secure outdoor areas where you can mingle with other people and receive great support from Cara’s staff of Possible People.

We have STA properties for children and adults separately.

You can stay from as little as a few hours, right up to a few weeks.

Make regular bookings throughout the year or take some longer breaks with us – whatever suits you and your lifestyle.

Relax and recharge

The best thing about Short Term Accommodation and holidays is that everyone has peace of mind. You know that you’ll have fun with Cara. Your family and loved ones can relax, knowing that you’re enjoying yourself. Everyone reconnects after STA feeling refreshed and recharged.
