We offer different types of disability accommodation in Melbourne. For more information on each type, please follow the links below:

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)

Group Homes

Short Term Accommodation (STA)

Medium Term Accommodation (MTA)

Supported Independent Living (SIL)

Complex Care or High Care

Specialist Disability Accommodation in Melbourne

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA accommodation) is specialist housing for people who have extreme functional impairment or very high support needs. This means you need person-to-person support with daily living tasks such as getting dressed, toileting, transferring safely in and out of bed or getting to appointments. Through the NDIS, you can receive funding to move into a specially designed home that is purpose-built to suit your needs (e.g. a home with wide doorways, robust build, ceiling hoists, an accessible bathroom or kitchen).

As an SDA provider, Home Caring provides contemporary SDA housing in Melbourne with plenty of support in a warm, home-like environment. Be part of the community and enjoy independent living in our range of SDA NDIS homes in Melbourne, while having everything you need to be comfortable and reach your goals.

Group Homes in Melbourne

A group home is a shared living accommodation where you can live with a small group of people in a home-like environment. This type of home allows you to have your own room and space, while still being able to make new friends, work on your personal goals and receive the support you need.

Home Caring provides disability group homes for Melbourne locals, catering for people with a range of disabilities. Our homes are conveniently located near public transport, shops, recreation spaces and other amenities. We aim to make sure our residents not only feel included, welcome and safe, but have the opportunity to pursue their goals and live the life they choose.

Short Term Accommodation in Melbourne

Sometimes the unexpected happens – such as an illness, accident or crisis situation – and you need temporary accommodation in a supported environment. Under the NDIS, temporary housing is available through Short Term Accommodation (STA): a temporary supported accommodation solution for a period of 2 to 6 weeks.

Home Caring provides Short Term Accommodation for NDIS participants in Melbourne, so you can stay connected to the community rather than have a lengthy hospital stay or premature placement in an aged care facility. We’ll help you stay safe and supported in a home that suits your needs, so you can quickly get back on your feet.

Medium Term Accommodation in Melbourne

Medium Term Accommodation (MTA) is for NDIS participants who need temporary or transitional accommodation while they wait for their permanent home to become available, or to be built. This type of accommodation is available so that people with disability aren’t forced into an aged care facility, or made to wait in hospital longer than needed.

Home Caring provides suitable Medium Term Accommodation NDIS options in Melbourne that allow you to get the support you need – in a space that is comfortable and safe. All of our homes are well located near shops, transport, recreation spaces and other amenities so you can stay connected to friends, family and the local community.

Supported Independent Living in Melbourne

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is support that you receive in your home, so you can live independently in the community. SIL providers help you with tasks such as personal care activities, building skills for daily living, domestic chores (e.g. shopping, keeping your home clean and tidy), implementing behaviour support plans and transport to appointments. They can also provide supervision and nursing care.

We provide Supported Independent Living in Melbourne to help you with everyday life. Our highly experienced SIL NDIS team offer high quality support with compassion, respect and a commitment to excellence. We’ll get to know you, and work with you to design a care plan that perfectly suits your needs.

Complex Care in Melbourne

Complex care or high care is support for people who have complex support needs. Provided in your home, it includes things like safe bed transfers; help with daily tasks such as going to the toilet, dressing or showering, bowel care; tracheostomy care and management of conditions like diabetes.

Home Caring provides tailored NDIS complex care (or NDIS high intensity support) in Melbourne. We deliver high level residential care – in the comfort of your own home –  from dedicated staff how pay attention to every detail. We are passionate about treating each of our clients as individuals, valuing their choice, perspective and consent. For more information about our complex care packages, please get in touch.

How much does disability accommodation cost?

If you are eligible, the cost of your disability accommodation in Australia can be subsidised by the Australian Government through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Having an NDIS plan can allow you to access the type of accommodation you need, such as different types of SDA, Medium Term or Short Term Accommodation.

It’s important to note that the funding in your plan is used for housing, not the services or supports you receive in your home (that is covered by a different part of your plan). If you are just at the beginning of your NDIS journey or need help applying for accommodation funding through the NDIS, please get in touch. Our team is happy to walk you through the process, and chat to you about your needs.

What vacancies do you have in Melbourne?

For information on our current SDA, MTA, STA and other disability accommodation vacancies in Melbourne, please get in touch by calling 1300 875 375 or use the contact form on our website.

What types of SDA housing are there?

SDA for people with disability is divided into four different building types and four different design categories, based on what a person needs from a dwelling. The four different building types are apartments; duplexes, villas or townhouses; houses, and group homes.

The four different types of design categories are Improved Liveability (housing with a reasonable level of physical access provision); Robust Housing (homes designed to be very resilient); Fully Accessible (high level of physical access provision) and High Physical Support (high level of physical access provision for people with significant physical impairment, who require very high levels of support).

To be accredited as an SDA dwelling, housing for people with disability must meet design requirements determined and assessed by the NDIS. Different price limits are set by the NDIS, depending on the dwelling type and design category requirements. It’s always important to check that a home meets your needs before committing to a service agreement with the provider.

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

It depends on what support you need, how many people you would like to live with, and what type of building you would like to live in.

When applying for funding from the NDIS, it’s also important to consider how a dwelling will:

  • help you access the other supports you need to live independently;
  • align with your individual goals under your NDIS plan;
  • suit your tastes – is it the type of home you want to live in?
  • help you get involved with the local community, pursue hobbies and stay connected to other people;
  • help you stay in touch with friends and family, maintain or create new relationships, and have your support network around you;
  • reduce any risks to yourself or other people.

Home Caring provides a range of disability accommodation in Melbourne and other locations around Australia. As well as providing for various support needs, our homes are modern, comfortable, ideally located in vibrant communities, and close to amenities such as shopping centres, public transport and recreation spaces.
