CareChoice Homes

Apply now for disability housing in Geelong and Wyndham Vale

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 develop the eight houses for eligible SDA participants in sought-after locations close to public transport and amenities. Each home has been created for two participants. Construction of this disability housing is starting in October with completion scheduled for early 2020.

These safe and secure houses in are designed to be ‘forever homes’ for people with a disability. Participants might be inappropriately housed in a nursing home or community residential unit, or living with ageing parents, and uncertain about their future.

We are now seeking expressions of interest from people with SDA funding – or those who are currently pursuing it – to become residents in this disability housing. Click here to lodge an expression of interest.

CareChoice is currently seeking:

  • eight eligible participants for four homes in Mt Duneed within the Armstrong Creek Estate (with access to Club Armstrong)
  • eight eligible participants for four homes in Wyndham Vale in the Wynbrook Estate.

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.

CareChoice will carefully match eligible participants for this disability housing or, alternatively, participants may choose to live with a friend who also has SDA funding.

Our multidisciplinary team of qualified and experienced support staff will provide ongoing, consistent and round-the-clock support.

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.

CareChoice has experienced staff members who can guide potential participants through the SDA funding application process to access this new disability housing.
