9 Units Chadstone SDA House
CHADSTONE SDA HOUSE
Rich in potential, character and highly sought area of Chadstone. This generous 708sqm land was bought with an intention for development of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) that contributes to the social and economy outcomes for Australians with a significant and permanent disability.
SDA refers to home for people who require specialist housing solutions, including to assist with the delivery of supports that cater to their extreme functional impairment or very high support needs for independent living.
The release of the SDA Design Standards marks an important milestone in the maturing of the SDA market. The improved clarity of design requirements, together with the opportunity for pre-certification at the planning stage add to provider confidence and surety of compliance, ultimately strengthening the market. This approach will ensure residents continue to have access to high quality, well-maintained SDA.
For eligible participants, SDA is a life-changing support. SDA empowers participants through greater control, independence, privacy and opportunities to maintain and grow personal relationships. It is estimated that around 28,000 or 6.1 per cent of NDIS participants will be eligible for SDA once it is fully rolled out.
A high standard of detailed Design requirements has been incorporated into this new built SDA home under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) based on Improved Liveability.
Our 9 Units Improved Liveability SDA units design based on apartment concept with self-contained units occupying only part of the larger residential. Each of the self-contained unit comprises a contemporary open layout Living, Dining, Kitchen, study area, laundry space, minimum of one bedroom and an Ensuite attached that is accessible from Living area and Bedroom. Every unit opens to a deck offered with leafy green landscape and bright sunshine.
For the improvement of the participants, the common walkway that links to the Entry/Exit of the dwelling is well equipped with Hot desk for communal purpose that encourages connection between participants. Two Onsite Overnight Assistance (OOA) units were provided each on one floor for OOA support staff to provide services overnight to participants living in this new SDA home. A large outdoor decking was also provided as communal facility. Moreover, to fully facilitate movements of the participants, a lift was in placed to connects ground and the first floor.
