In the past few years, with the COVID-19 pandemic there has been a big influx of Australians looking to downsize or relocate to retirement or aged care communities. But what about those who are physically unable to leave their home? Well, there is a solution for you as well: specialist disability accommodation.

Specialist disability accommodation can be found in a range of settings, whether you’re looking for somewhere to live that can accommodate personal care and services such as nursing, cleaning and food preparation or want to live in your own home with help.

There is a variety of specialised accommodation available for people with disabilities, such as retirement communities, residential aged care facilities, and community care facilities. It is important that you discuss your requirements with your family members so that they can provide you with the necessary support as you make the choice that is best for you.

In order to provide housing for elderly individuals or younger individuals with disabilities, care providers for the elderly and disabled must first obtain registration from the government. This ensures that you can have faith that a service provider is managed professionally and will give services of a high standard.

If you are thinking about renting a unit in an aged care facility, it’s important to understand how they work and what they offer their residents. For example, many of these facilities have libraries where residents can borrow books to read. Others may provide transportation services so that elders stay mobile as long as possible. And some facilities even offer on-site medical clinics so that residents don’t have to travel far when they need primary care services like immunizations or check-ups!

To receive any government funding, you must reside in a registered facility, but this does not always mean a residential aged care facility. There are many different types of accommodation that can be considered specialist disability accommodation. Some are residential and some are not. Some cater for older people, others for younger people; some for people with disabilities, others for those without; some for men only and some for everyone!

Getting out of home is accommodation for people with disability who want to live independently of their family or carers. It provides a home environment where you have your own space, there are other people with disabilities around, and you can have privacy and independence.

It is not suitable if:

  • You need someone on hand all the time, such as in a residential aged care facility.
  • You want to live in an area that has good transport links but which doesn’t have many services nearby (a lack of support services can be hard).

Conclusion

When looking for specialised accommodations suited to people with disabilities, you need give some thought to a wide range of factors, some of which are listed above. The most effective method for determining whether or not a provider of elderly care offers a particular sort of service and the kinds of services they make available is to get in touch with a provider of such care and ask them questions. You can also check their website to see whether or not it is something that is compatible with the way that you live your life.
