Short-Term Specialist Disability Health Accommodation

Providing Transition, Respite & Holiday Accommodation in state of the art, fully self-contained homes – stay from one day to one year.

The short-term Specialist Disability & Health Accommodation (SDHA) facility will have a modern contemporary design with features and textures to differentiate and contrast the dwellings from the institutional, clinical, atmosphere that residents may have recently left behind. The dwellings will provide residents with privacy while also feeling sufficiently spacious and open so as to be conductive to wellbeing. The use of innovative, modern and evidence based technologies and designs will make the SDHA facility a leading solution in the field.

To provide familiar benchmarks for assessing the suitability of our SDHA against resident needs our facilities and care packages are designed on NDIS guidelines. By meeting NDIS requirements, and using NDIS terminology, coordinators and residents can be confident in the quality and level of care provided by our facility and be able to more readily and transparently compare prices of alternative solutions. Of course, our SDHA is available to residents under more than just NDIS arrangements and we are happy to work with you to customise services to meet your individual needs and provide choice and control.

Development will be designed to exceed NDIS High Physical support SDA, LHA Platinum Level and provide Hydrotherapy Pool Facilities.
