Find specialist disability accommodation that’s right for you
July 4, 2022
When searching for specialist disability accommodation (SDA), it’s important to be matched with a home that’s purpose-built for you and your unique needs. You’ll also want something in a desirable location – ideally, your home should be close to a variety of amenities including public transport, medical facilities, retail precincts, entertainment, and dining so that you have everything you need to live an independent and fulfilling life.
At Aspire Hub, we’re passionate about getting eligible NDIS participants into specialist disability accommodation that suits their wants and needs. So, if you’re searching for vacancies, here’s how to find SDA that’s right for you.
A quick refresher: what is specialist disability accommodation (SDA)?
SDA is a type of NDIS housing designed for people who require purpose-built housing solutions with a higher reliance on support. It allows people with complex care needs the freedom to live in an accessible home that is tailored to their specific needs. People that require SDA may have:
- extreme functional impairment (difficulty completing personal tasks or taking care of themselves)
- high physical support
- high support needs (those who rely on extensive person-to-person specialist support)
SDA is entirely accessible and built with features such as ceiling hoists, home automation, and assistive technology, depending on a participant’s needs.
As a category of NDIS accommodation, SDA must meet a certain criteria of design standards to provide support in a flexible, shared living style. The inclusions within an SDA will differ from home to home as each is customised to suit the needs of the people residing there.
If you’ve received funding for SDA in your NDIS plan, it’s important to note that this does not cover services or support. However, in-home supports can easily be delivered within an SDA home.
