Frequently asked questions

We want you to feel more independent, comfortable, and happy. This is why we have created a list of resources to help you on your journey.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) refers to homes that have been approved by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). SDA does not include other supports (such as assistance with daily tasks) that are offered by care providers.

SDA funding is available under the NDIS to cover disability related housing costs. Until now, there has been limited choice for those living with a disability.

At Adelphi Living, we believe in giving you the choice and control to choose the lifestyle that enables you to achieve your independent living goals.

SDA funding is specially to cover the cost of housing (the building, the land and the ongoing maintenance and upkeep costs). SDA funding varies depending on factors such as the type of building, the location, the features, and the number of people occupying the dwelling. SDA funding cannot be used by participants for any other purpose.

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is financial assistance to a participant for obtaining help with and/or supervision of daily tasks to enable them to live as independently as possible. Let us take care of all of your SIL needs. Right from the start, we’ve got you covered.

We are committed to giving you what you need, without you having to jump through hoops to get there. As such, you may not need SDA funding support to cover short term stays in our homes. However, for a permanent, long term stay, SDA funding is required. Our team is here to guide you through the journey towards obtaining SDA funding support in your NDIS plan.

After meeting with Adelphi Living to identify your unique needs to test your eligibility, we guide you through the complex NDIS landscape to help you obtain your SDA funding. From the various assessments required, we develop suitable goals and communicate this in order to get funding approval. Although complicated, we will talk you through any hiccups along the way. 

As the next step, we encourage you to apply for a SIL assessment and application for the NDIS too. Once everything is approved, it is time to move in!
