Specialist Disability Accommodation Case Studies and Product Solutions by HLS healthcare 

SDA funding under the NDIS is intended to stimulate investment in the development of new high quality dwellings for use by eligible NDIS participants. SDA refers to accommodation for people who require specialist housing solutions, to assist with the delivery of supports that cater for their functional impairment or high support needs.

Today we are at the start of a somewhat confusing journey for many architects and housing developers, where the end goal is high-quality accessible housing for 28,000 people with support needs. To make some clear pathways for SDA developers we have summarised a number of SDA case studies as well as the relevant products used.

Case Study 1

Rapid Interim Housing Prototype

A lack of accessible housing available at the right time and in the right area can leave people with a newly acquired disability stuck in hospital, rehab or being admitted to aged care. Our Rapid Interim Housing addresses the gap between leaving hospital or rehab and finding appropriate permanent housing.

People with acquired brain injury (ABI) and spinal cord injury (SCI) are often unable to find suitable housing in the community due to their accessibility and support needs. But not returning to the community as soon as possible after an injury impacts a person’s health and well being, their ability to live independently declines quickly, their connections with the community drop away and their mental health often suffers.

The Summer Foundation is working with Oscar Building and Stretchy Tech to prototype and display an interim housing unit that can be rapidly located to provide housing for someone who is waiting for accessible housing to become available or for home modifications to be completed.

HLS healthcare has assisted the summer foundation in it’s Geelong Prototype by implementing their Guildmann Ceiling Hoist and Guldmann slings.

Guldmann Slings are ideal for moving people to and from beds to wheelchairs, between rooms and to change patients from a lying to an upright position. With a range of specialisations from amputee, kids, active as well as an array of materials for hygiene and skin sensitivity, premium quality slings by Guldmann are the perfect solution to many specialist disability accommodation homes.

Guldmann Slings are interchangeable with all Guldmann Ceiling Hoist Solutions which allows for a wide range of rail options, including easy manoeuvrability between two or more rooms. Perfect for Specialist Disability Accomodations the ceiling hoists can be altered to suit the individual needs of each inhabitant or smartly hidden. Many of the Guldmann Ceiling Hoists charge directly through the rails no matter where the ceiling hoist is placed in the room, this is important when considering ways to increase the independence of accommodation inhabitants. 

The prototype looks just like any other small house – it has a living area, bedroom and ensuite, kitchenette and laundry. Assistive technology increases the occupant’s independence, safety and security. The prototype unit will be displayed in Melbourne and regional Victoria.

With funding from the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), this project is aiming to have a long-lasting impact on the way people with disability are discharged from hospital and into the community.
