Unlocking Independence: The Remarkable Role of Granny Flat Solutions in NDIS and Assisted Living Support
A Granny Flat is an ideal way to help people living with a disability enjoy independent living while retaining proximity to a supportive family unit. Whether it’s for a young person looking to move out of home for the first time or as an alternative to other specialist disability accommodation options, it’s an affordable and secure solution.
Let’s look at some questions you might have about the NDIS before we discuss how Granny Flat Solutions’ assisted living Granny Flats can accommodate people with unique care requirements.
What is the NDIS?
Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides financial support for people living with permanent and significant disability based on their individual needs. It aims to give participants a greater quality of life and help them reach their goals, whether that’s through employment support, independent living, or medical therapies.
What is the SDA Program?
The Specialist Disability Accommodation program aims to encourage growth in housing supply for those living with a disability. Funding is accessible through the NDIS if it’s identified as necessary support for a participant.
What are Assisted Living Granny Flats?
At Granny Flat Solutions, we understand the importance of creating a safe and comfortable environment for people we care about. This is why we are more than happy to work with you to build a Granny Flat that is custom-fit with special provisions that will allow your loved one to live independently but close enough to the family home to access support when required.
We understand that everyone’s needs are different, and that’s why we offer a wide range of affordable designs and will work with you to install any specific equipment you may require or provide modifications that best suit your requirements.

- Allowing your loved one to remain close to the family support network.

Investing in NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation
As well as helping your community, investing in Specialist Disability Accommodation provides much higher rental returns. Therefore, if you have space in your backyard, why not consider building an SDA-compliant Granny Flat?
NDIS participants who are granted SDA funding have limited accommodation options. But by building a second dwelling that complies with NDIS standards and is approved by an SDA assessor, you could help solve a social problem while accessing a secure rental income stream.
However, it is important to note that funding is dependent on an NDIS participant being identified as eligible to rent the property, so you will need to contact an NDIS service provider to find a suitable tenant.
