So, what exactly are Robust Homes? Robust SDA Homes are a category of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). These custom-designed dwellings cater to individuals who typically may exhibit behaviours of concern or a history of property damager or have other needs for a house constructed of resilient materials. These homes are built with a focus on safety, accessibility, and comfort, using resilient building materials and high-level physical access provisions to reduce the need for reactive maintenance and repairs and minimise risk to participants and carers.

Edenbridge Living, a registered SDA provider in Australia, is committed to creating Robust Homes that not only meet the unique needs of individuals living with disabilities but also promote independence and enhance the quality of life for its residents.
