  • Improved Liveability – features include safe and continuous accessways for people with physical impairments, physical access provision, accessible bathrooms and kitchens, special lighting and sensory features, and improved wayfinding.
  • Robust – these are resilient homes with robust construction that reduce the risk of injury to yourself and others (for example, secure doors and windows) and enough space to support people with complex behaviours.
  • Fully Accessible – these are homes with a high level of physical access for people who have physical challenges (e.g., if you use a powered wheelchair at home). These homes have features that make daily tasks easier, such as eating, showering and cooking. They also have assistive technology to aid independence.
  • High Physical Support – these homes come with special features that enable people with very high needs to access the support they need, such as a ceiling hoist in the bedroom, backup power supply in case of a power outage, wide doors to all room, communication technology, and home automation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does SDA cost?

If you apply for SDA housing in Newcastle and are deemed eligible, it will be included as a support in your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan. This means that the cost of your SDA 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 specialised disability housing, not the services or supports you receive while living there.

How do I apply for NDIS SDA?

One of the first steps in applying for Specialist Disability Accommodation in Newcastle is talking to your support coordinator. They can help you with the application process, and work out the best way to show the NDIA 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 would suit your needs. Keep in mind that to be eligible for NDIS SDA in Newcastle, you must have extreme functional impairment or/and very high support needs.

Home Caring is a NDIS registered SDA provider in Newcastle. Our homes are of the highest standard, so people can live with full support in the community. For more information, please get in touch and chat to one of our friendly team members.

How do I know what accommodation will suit me?

How do I know what accommodation will suit me?

Before you move into specialist disability housing, take some time to do a bit of research so you can choose the best possible home for you needs. First and foremost, take a tour of the house and see if you can see yourself living there. There’s no point moving into a place which isn’t suited to your taste or lifestyle.

As you explore your options, here are some questions to ask a Specialist Disability Accommodation provider:

  • Are you registered with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission?
  • How can I be sure that the home is of a high standard?
  • Does the home have all the supports I need (or will I be able to access them)?
  • Can I see myself living independently here?
  • Is the home located close to things I need? e.g. shops, public transport, parks for exercise
  • Will I have an opportunity to meet my future housemates, and see if we get along?
  • What happens if I have an issue in my home? What is your process for dealing with complaints?
  • Is it close to employment opportunities?
  • Are there opportunities for me to take part in activities I enjoy?
  • Is the home located close to my existing support network
  • Is the home a safe space for me to live in? (e.g. does it have safe parking, secure building, communications technology)
  • Does the home have conveniences such as WiFi, air conditioning and good appliances?
