Supported Accommodation Providers
A home is more than four walls and a roof. It is an important space where we spend most of our time, sharing our lives with those around us and taking refuge from the outside world. Your home is where you carry out your daily routines and fall asleep at night, but also where you make memories and feel a sense of nostalgia and comfort. A home can be anywhere you are, but not everywhere you stay will feel like home.
A home, whether it’s shared or all your own, helps to shape your individual identity. It is important that your home is a safe space physically, mentally, and emotionally. People living with disabilities need Accommodation that improves their lives and has all the supports they need to live as independently as possible.
Whether you or your loved one experiences a disability, there are ample support services available with funding from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to ensure you can live your life to the fullest. Let’s take a look at exactly what this means and how you can make the most of your opportunities.
How Can Accommodation Help Someone With A Disability?
People living with disabilities often face extraordinary challenges with day-to-day tasks and activities but these challenges are never one and the same. Where some people may require assistance with everyday hygiene tasks such as showering and getting in and out of bed, others may require help with cooking, cleaning, and laundry as well.
There are innumerable possibilities for the amount of support someone may need and each participant’s plan will be completely different. That’s where Maple Community Services comes in as we can help you assess the best type of living arrangements to suit your needs and work on building life skills to help you live as independently as possible.
Does NDIS Pay for Accommodation?
The funding for Accommodation for people living with disabilities via the NDIS is only available to those with high-level functional impairments or high support needs. You will need to determine if you or your loved one qualify for the Special Disability Accommodation or Supported Independent Living funding options through the NDIA’s assessment and planning process.
The funding under SIL supports the assistance and support needed in these situations rather than the costs of the Accommodations themselves. Expenses such as rent, groceries, utilities, telephones, and internet access, as well as general household items such as furniture, appliances, and cooking utensils are the responsibility of the participant or may be supported through other government or non-government programs. Only assistive devices or aids can be supported through NDIS funding.
