Listen to CareChoice’s CEO, Amanda Bond, discuss the need for Specialist Disability Accommodation and CareChoice Homes with Daryl and Renee on BayFM (93.9). November 2019.
Modern, architecturally designed houses for people with complex disability support needs will soon be available in Geelong and Wyndham Vale.
CareChoice is partnering with an NDIS registered housing provider to offer eight houses for eligible SDA participants in sought-after locations close to public transport and amenities. Each home has been designed for two participants with completion scheduled for early 2020.
These safe and secure houses are designed to be ‘forever homes’ for people with a disability who wish to access specialist disability accommodation funding to find a new home. Our aim is to ensure people who are inappropriately housed in a nursing home, community residential unit, or who are living with ageing parents uncertain about their future, can access new disability housing.
These large three-bedroom houses are designed for two participants with an onsite overnight accommodation (OOA) room for a support worker. The six-star energy rated houses include features such as ceiling hoists, extra-wide hallways, assistive technology as well as individual heating and cooling units to accommodate high physical support needs. Our multidisciplinary team of qualified and experienced support staff will provide ongoing, consistent and round-the-clock support.
We are seeking expressions of interest from people with SDA funding – or those who are currently pursuing it – to become residents in these new houses:
In addition to these eight houses, CareChoice is partnering with NDIS registered housing providers across Melbourne and key regional areas to offer more forever homes. These projects will support people across the SDA design categories of high physical support, improved liveability, fully accessible and robust.
If you are seeking a forever home in any of these SDA design categories, then call us on 1300 737 942. CareChoice Homes has experienced staff members who can guide potential participants through the SDA funding application process to apply for new disability housing.
