NDIS, Housing and You

NDIS housing stock image

When it comes to planning for the future, thinking about a place to call home is a priority for all people.

Your home of the future might be in a high-rise apartment, a unit in a small group or a traditional house. You might choose to live alone or share with housemates.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will allow for a range of accommodation options for people with disabilties, from home modifications to finding and securing share house accommodation.

Other families may wish to explore using their superannuation to invest in accessible housing.

Paul and Susan Scardigno

Paul Scardigno is a Cara customer who, with wife Susan and their daughter Anais, 8, lives in an apartment in Woodville West with support from Cara’s Concierge service. This blog follows their journey from Paul's diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) through to understanding their current situation. It will also follow their journey as they seek to move into alternative accommodation. We don't know where this journey will go, but we hope that it helps others considering housing options, what the NDIS means for housing, as well as better understanding what is possible with the support of Cara.
