NDIS SDA in Wollongong

Home Caring provides NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation in Wollongong and its surrounding suburbs. These are homes that are designed and built to meet the needs of people living with extreme functional impairment, or who have very high support needs.

If you are eligible for SDA by the NDIA, funding for this type of housing will be included in your personalised NDIS plan. This covers the cost of the home you live in, but not the supports you might receive in that home, as this is funded through a different type of support.

Home Caring is registered with the National Disability Insurance Scheme’s Quality and Safeguards Commission to provide high quality SDA accommodation in Wollongong.

Our exceptional homes include the following NDIS accessible design requirements:

  • Improved Liveability – home 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.
