Frequently Asked Questions

How much does SDA cost?

If you are deemed eligible by the NDIA, NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation in Geelong can be included as a support in your NDIS plan, which means that the cost of your NDIS housing is covered by funds from your plan.

The NDIA sets a price limit for supports like Specialist Disability Accommodation, which is the maximum amount a registered provider can charge you. Providers then decide the price they will charge, based on the cost of delivering accessible housing to you. You can negotiate the price with your provider, though keep in mind that the cost covers only the housing, not the services or supports you receive while living there.

How do I apply for NDIS SDA?

To be eligible for NDIS SDA in Geelong, you must have extreme functional impairment or/and very high support needs. A good first step is to talk to your NDIS support coordinator. They can help you show the NDIS that you are eligible for this type of support. This will involve getting a Housing Assessment Report done, which is a comprehensive assessment that works out whether you’re eligible, and what type of disability accommodation on the Geelong would suit your needs.

Home Caring is a NDIS registered SDA provider in Geelong. We offer quality homes where you can be supported to reach your goals. For more information, please get in touch and chat to one of our friendly team members.

How do I know what type of NDIS accommodation will suit me?

Just like moving into any new home, there are lots of things to consider when moving into disability accommodation, especially if you’re planning on living there long term. It’s a good idea to do research before making a decision by talking to the providers, asking other people about their experience with them, and visiting the home so you can get a feel for what living there would be like.

Some questions to ask yourself when considering new disability accommodation are:

  • Is the provider registered with the NDIS, and can I be sure that the home is of a high standard?
  • Is the home accessible based on my needs? Will I be able to live independently and take care of myself?
  • Will I be able to access all the supports I need while living there?
  • Do I like the spaces in the home? Can I see myself enjoying living here?
  • Is the home located close to things I need? e.g. shops, public transport, parks for exercise
  • Will I be able to get along with my potential housemates? Is there an opportunity to meet them before I move in?
  • What happens if I have an issue in my home? Does the provider have a process for dealing with complaints?
  • Are there opportunities for me to take part in activities I enjoy? (e.g. day programs, classes, capacity building)
  • How far away will I be from my support network? Is it in a preferred location, close to friends and family?
  • Is the home a safe space for me to live in? (e.g. safe parking, secure building, communications technology)
  • Does the home have conveniences such as WiFi, air conditioning and good appliances?
  • Am I happy with the providers? Do I feel comfortable asking questions and raising issues?
