Exploring Diverse NDIS Support Options in Australia


Understanding Disability Support Services

Explore the various types of disability support services available to cater to individual needs and preferences.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA)

SDA refers to specialized housing designed for individuals with extreme functional impairment or very high support needs. These homes feature accessibility enhancements and assistive technologies to promote independent living, with residents receiving support from disability workers or carers for daily activities and personal care.

Short-Term Accommodation (STA)

STA, also known as respite care, provides temporary housing for individuals requiring support for up to 14 days. It offers a brief break for participants and their carers, with assistance for daily tasks, meals, personal care, and social engagement, aiming to rejuvenate participants while providing carers with time for rest or other commitments.

Medium-Term Accommodation (MTA)

MTA offers temporary housing solutions for individuals needing support for longer durations, typically up to 90 days. It suits those awaiting permanent housing availability, transitioning from other arrangements, or needing support during periods of change. MTA includes specialized support services and facility access to ease the transition to permanent housing.

Supported Independent Living (SIL)

SIL empowers individuals with disabilities to live independently in their homes or shared arrangements, with tailored support services. Participants make daily decisions while accessing support as required, including household tasks, personal care, budgeting, and community engagement, based on individual needs.

Individualised Living Option (ILO)

ILO offers a flexible disability support approach, focusing on individual needs and goals to tailor services accordingly. Unlike traditional models, ILO allows participants to design their living arrangements and support structures, promoting self-determination and active community participation.

Understanding the distinctions between these disability support services empowers individuals and families to make informed choices aligned with their goals for independence, well-being, and quality of life.
