Empowered To Care Ltd takes pride in offering Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) designed to meet the needs of individuals with extreme functional impairment or very high support requirements. Our SDA homes are thoughtfully designed and operated with a commitment to making support services more accessible and aligned with your goals.
Our SDA homes are shared living spaces, typically with a small number of other residents. However, we understand that every individual has unique needs and circumstances. Therefore, in some cases, we can provide an SDA house for you to live in independently if that option better suits your needs.
SDA funding covers the cost of the home or building you live in. However, it’s important to note that you may still need to contribute to rent or cover other personal costs associated with living in SDA. The specific services or support you receive in your SDA home will be an additional cost and will depend on your NDIS Plan.
Eligibility for SDA is determined by having extremely high support needs and requiring specialised housing solutions. We can guide you through the eligibility criteria and application process.
