Support Coordinator

Moving into an Edenbridge Living home is a life-changing experience for my brother, who has an intellectual disability. The 1-bedroom villa gives him the independence he craved but still with support available and friends living next door. The Edenbridge team's dedication to their residents' comfort is evident in every detail of their homes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of disability housing?

Various disability housing options are available to cater to varying needs and preferences. They are:

  1. Group Homes: Shared housing for individuals with disabilities, providing 24/7 support services.
  2. Independent Living Units: Self-contained apartments with optional support for those who can live independently but may need occasional assistance.
  3. Assisted Living Facilities: Residential settings offering personal care and support services designed for those who require more daily assistance.
  4. Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA): High-quality housing solution for people with significant functional impairment or high support needs under the NDIS framework.
  5. Community Housing: Subsidised, accessible housing for low-income individuals with disabilities managed by non-profit organisations.

What are the four SDA design categories?

There are four distinct SDA design categories: Improved Liveability, Fully Accessible, High Physical Support, and Robust.

Can I choose where I live?

Having checked the disability housing enrolments and vacancies and within the availability of suitable disability housing properties, you can choose your accommodation based on location, type, and provider.

Can I move to another disability home?

Yes, you can move to another disability home if your needs change or if you find a more suitable option. However, this requires a reassessment of your eligibility and needs.

What kind of support can I expect in disability housing?

Support varies by accommodation but can include on-site care, access to therapy services, community activities, and assistive technologies.

Who is eligible for disability housing?

To be eligible for disability housing, an individual typically aged between 18 and 65 has extreme functional impairment or very high support needs and is approved for SDA funding in their NDIS plan.

How long does the application process take?

The timeline can vary depending on individual circumstances, including the availability of suitable accommodations and the completeness of your application.

What if my disability housing application is denied?

You can request a review of the decision through the NDIS. It’s also beneficial to consult with your NDIS planner or a local area coordinator for further guidance and to explore alternative solutions.

What costs are involved with disability housing?

SDA funding for disability housing covers the cost of the physical environment for eligible NDIS participants. SDA funding does not cover personal daily living costs like groceries and internet.

What is 'Supported Independent Living' (SIL)?

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a range of services provided to people with disabilities to support them in living as independently as possible. This typically includes assistance with daily tasks, personal care, and developing skills to participate in the community, tailored to the individual’s needs and goals. SIL aims to empower individuals by enhancing their ability to perform everyday activities within their own homes and communities.

What do you mean by 'Individualised Living Options'?

‘Individualised Living Options’ (ILO) in Australia are personalised living arrangements for people with disabilities. These options focus on creating solutions that match the individual’s needs, preferences, and goals rather than fitting them into preexisting housing models. ILOs can vary greatly, encompassing arrangements like living alone with support, co-residency where a person shares their home with a support worker, host arrangements in another family’s home, or living with chosen housemates with support structures tailored to their needs.

Are there any cost-effective housing options available for the disabled?

Cost-effective housing options for disabled individuals often include subsidised public housing, shared accommodations in boarding houses specifically adapted for accessibility, and private rentals with financial assistance through government programs or non-profit organisations. These options aim to provide affordable, accessible living spaces that meet the needs of individuals with disabilities, ensuring they have the support and facilities necessary for a comfortable living environment.

How can Rental Assistance and Bond Loan Assistance help the disabled?

Rental Assistance and Bond Loan Assistance can significantly help disabled individuals in several ways:

  1. Reduced Financial Burden: These programs help lower renting costs, making it more affordable for disabled individuals who might be on a limited income due to their inability to work full-time.
  2. Access to Suitable Accommodation: With financial assistance, disabled individuals can afford to live in accommodations designed or modified for their needs, improving their quality of life.
  3. Security Deposit Support: Bond Loan Assistance provides the upfront costs often required for rental properties, such as security deposits, which can be a significant barrier for many individuals looking to rent.
  4. Stability and Independence: By assisting with the financial aspects of housing, these programs enable disabled individuals to live independently in a stable environment, which is crucial for their overall well-being.
  5. Flexibility in Housing Options: Financial assistance can broaden the range of housing options available to disabled individuals, allowing them to choose homes in suitable locations closer to essential services or support networks.
  6. Encouragement of Social Inclusion: Living in a stable, suitable environment can help disabled individuals participate more fully in community life, enhancing their social inclusion and mental health.

These programs are designed to ensure that disabled individuals can live in safe, comfortable, and affordable housing, addressing one of the most fundamental aspects of their well-being.
