NDIS Accommodation And Housing

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is designed to allow more choice and control in the lives of people living with a permanent and significant disability. If one of your NDIS goals is to be able to live more independently, Paradise & Paradise Care’s Supported Accommodation could be the right choice to help you reach this goal. At Paradise, we provide modern shared homes in sought-after areas with support workers available all the time for NDIS participants with the supported accommodation funding.

How Supported Accommodation Can be Life-Changing

Opportunities

Moving places means new paths and opportunities opening up. This is a moment for you to reflect on what is important to you and consider which options might make your life easier or more rewarding. 

Safety and Security 

Balancing freedom and safety is important to everyone. While you will share the communal areas with the other house members, your new bedroom is your own space. You will have the freedom to arrange and decorate it in a way that you like. At least one support worker is on-site 24 hours a day to provide support for the house members. Challenge staff are highly trained in responding to emergencies and ensuring the safety of the house members, so you can enjoy your freedom knowing that assistance is close to hand.

Friends

One of the joys of moving is the opportunity to expand your social circle. We understand that living with other people is a great way to make new friends, therefore we strive to match you to other house members who are of similar age and have shared interests. Paradise’s shared homes often contain communal facilities like the kitchen, living room, laundry and outdoor entertaining area. Sharing communal areas with other house members means that you will have lots of opportunities to be social in your everyday life.

Independence

Moving into a space of your own allows you to make more of your own decisions and live the life you choose. But what if you need support in order to live independently? Paradise provides you with experienced and trained staff who are able to support you with personal daily care, finances, social skills, and daily life necessities.

Disability Accommodation & Housing Services

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)

Specialist disability accommodation (SDA) is a type of housing built for those who have severe functional impairments or require a high level of support. SDA houses provide accessible elements that allow inhabitants to live more independently and provide other services more effectively and safely. Some people with disabilities have extremely high support needs. This could imply that they require a specially designed home, otherwise referred to as specialized disability accommodation.

Participants eligible for specialist disability accommodation:

  • Have a severe functional impairment or require a lot of assistance
  • Fulfil the requirements for specialist disability accommodation as well as the NDIS funding criteria

SDA encourages the industry to produce high-quality, innovative, adaptable, well-designed

housing participants who have SDA funds. Construction and maintenance expenditures are covered by SDA funds, and paid directly to SDA providers. Participants pay a reasonable charge and other day-to-day living expenses, including utility bills.

Specialist Disability Accommodation Rules

According to the SDA Rules, all providers must be registered NDIS providers, and all residences must be registered with the NDIA. The SDA Rules detail the requirements for housing enrolment, such as design categories, construction kinds, and other price-influencing factors.

Specialist Disability Accommodation Design Standard

The SDA Design Standard is a precise set of requirements for all disability accommodation that covers four categories of SDA design:

  1. Improved livability
  2. Robust construction
  3. Improved accessibility
  4. A high level of physical support

SDA should always comply with the Australian National Construction Code and the Design Standard. These regulations are in place to guarantee that you have safe access to the highest, well-maintained SDA that fulfils your needs.

Specialist Disability Accommodation Vacancies and Pricing

If you’re seeking SDA vacancies, you can use the SDA Finder to look for available spaces. The SDA Finder is an effective tool created and maintained by the NDIA to assist you in finding suitable accommodation. A vacancy can be found by searching with many filtering choices, such as location, building type, and SDA pricing. Before entering into a service agreement, you should ensure that the housing satisfies your requirements.

If you need assistance discovering specialist disability accommodation in Sydney, you can reach out to us at Paradise and Paradise care. We will assist you in locating the appropriate program and vacancies and completing a Home and Living Supports Request Form. This information can be used to establish whether specialized disability accommodation is suitable for you and give additional support based on your needs.

Supported Independent Living (SIL)

Supported Independent Living, SIL for short, is an NDIS support where disabled people can live with other people with a disability or on their own. They will also be assisted with regular washing, cooking, and personal care. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) recommends SIL for individuals over the age of 18 who have more significant support needs that demand a large quantity of help all through the day.

Supported independent living support is frequently offered in a shared living situation. Each person residing in the housing receives help tailored to their specific needs. The majority of NDIS participants who receive SIL assistance live with roommates who also receive independent living services.

Supported Independent Living

To provide disability support accommodation, a supported independent living facility might provide people with supported living for disabled adults. If the disabled person wants to move out of the house and increase their independence,  SIL assistance can be a great solution.

  • SIL assists disabled people with daily responsibilities to live as autonomously as possible.
  • SIL pays for home-based supports like house modifications or day-to-day living expenditures like food. However, house rent is not included.

Supported Independent Living  Provider’s Responsibilities

A SIL provider’s responsibility is to provide the following support for disabled adults: 

  • Assistance with personal care activities;
  • Assistance in acquiring skills such as cleaning, meal preparing, and cooking;
  • Help develop a routine;
  • Support with behaviour management plans individuals may have;
  • Assistance in developing their social skills;
  • Support safety, and protection;
  • Assistance in administering medication;
  • Help with participation in community activities

To find out more, you can go through the Supported independent living operational guideline or go to the SIL funding and budgets page for more information on what SIL does and does not include and how the funding decisions are taken.

There are several SIL providers in Sydney, so it can be hard to know where to start. Support coordination can be a vital service in locating the best SIL provider for you and guiding you through the complete system. There is also a lot to learn about SIL, and financing can be difficult. Our expert staff at Paradise and Paradise care are here to help you with all of your SIL needs.

Short Term Accommodation ( STA), Medium Term Accommodation (MTA) and Long-Term Accommodation (LTA)

Short Term Accommodation (STA) is a type of residential care that allows both the participant and the caregiver to take a break or change of scenery. Short-term accommodation money can be used to provide relief for the participants and the caregivers. This provides your caregivers with a brief respite from their caring responsibilities.

It’s a broad word that encompasses several forms of STA assistance as well as respite care. STA allows disabled people to live away from home in a supportive atmosphere for brief periods of time.

  • One-on-one short-term care in which you partner with a support worker for a set length of time depending on individual requirements. This time can be spent at home or out in the neighbourhood participating in community events.
  • Short-term group respite choices link personal needs with those of other people who may have similar needs.
  • Weekend facility-based assistance if their needs and interests coincide with shared STA facilities.
Short term and long-term Living

While STA services are often provided in a group setting, some organizations offer STA as additional assistance in home comfort. STA is about more than just the housing; it is also about the assistance people receive while they are there.

STA financing covers the essential expenses associated with the service for 24 hours a day, including:

  • Accommodation in an appropriate facility
  • Personal attention and assistance
  • Food
  • Activities You and the service provider have agreed to

Short Term Accommodation can also be an option for the participants if the regular support network is unavailable for an extended length of time. The NDIS typically fund up to 28 days of Short Term Accommodation per year. Users can utilize their Short Term Accommodation funding in a variety of ways. For example, someone might utilize it for one weekend every month.

If someone needs a place to stay while they wait for a long-term housing option to be confirmed, Medium Term Accommodation can be a great option. However, the individuals must prove that they’ll have a place to reside after the Medium Term Accommodation assistance expires. The NDIS only fund Medium Term Accommodation if you have a confirmed long-term housing solution and are awaiting your respite care disability-related services so that they can move into your long-term residence.

At Paradise and Paradise Care, we are fully accredited and recognized NDIS service providers providing short-term and long term accommodation in Sydney. Our operational principles strive to improve our accommodators’ quality of life by fostering independence and providing group and individual opportunities within the community to meet new friends, participate in various everyday activities, and develop exciting skillsets. Contact us for more information
