Case Study – Will

Over two years ago, Will’s family chose Access4u to support them in using their NDIS plan. Our experienced team connected Will to the supports he needed using our resources, expertise and industry connections. This ultimately provided him with the best chance of reaching his goals.

Over time, we've been able to develop a great team of people who people understand Will. This has helped us support Will and has enabled him to increase his independence and achieve his goals.

Two years on and Will is now happily and independently living out of home with the support of his caring team.

Medium Term Accommodation (MTA)

What is Medium Term Accommodation?

Medium Term Accommodation (MTA) is a home and living support that Access4u provides. It refers to temporary transitional housing which is available to you if you are waiting for your more permanent residence to become available or waiting for it to be fit for use.

MTA is also an appropriate service to consider if you are leaving institutional care, waiting for home modifications to be completed, waiting for a vacancy, or your current living arrangements are not working out.

What Type of Support is Provided?

Funding for MTA only covers the cost of the accommodation for the time you stay there.

For example, you might need medium term accommodation while you wait for your home modifications to be completed, or you’ve already secured Specialist Disability Accommodation, but you’re waiting for another person to move out before you can move in.

Funding for medium term accommodation doesn’t include day-to-day living costs like food, internet or electricity. It also doesn’t include any personal care supports, or other supports you get in your home.

Currently using another NDIS provider? You can choose to change providers at any time, as long as you follow the notice periods in your service agreement.

Where is Medium Term Accommodation in My Plan?

Medium Term Accommodation is available to you if it appears in your NDIS plan under CORE Supports.

Where Is This Service Offered?


Like all of Access4u services, Medium Term Accommodation is available across metropolitan Adelaide, Mount Barker and the Fleurieu Peninsula.  View our office locations here.

This NDIS service is suitable for those requiring support and assistance with care outside of the home for children and young people with a disability.

For participants, respite might mean:

  • joining a new group

For carers, taking some time off can help them better manage their own health and improve their wellbeing.

This care service can assist families and caregivers by providing flexible supports that are designed to improve family relationships whilst the family maintains responsibility for decisions in the young person’s life in partnership with the service provider.

The support and assistance available under this model may include:

  • overnight support, transport
  • community activities
  • school hours care
  • school holiday support.

What is Specialist Disability Accommodation?

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is a range of housing designed for people with very high needs.

SDA homes are constructed to be more accessible for you. They enable better or safer delivery of other supports you may need. SDA usually involves a shared home with a small number of other people.

It’s easy to get SDA and Supported Independent Living (SIL) confused, as both supports aim to help people live independently. But while SIL is about supports, SDA funding is provided to cover the capital (bricks and mortar) costs of the dwelling.

What Type of Support is Provided?

Finding the right fit for you is important. Things to consider include how close it is to suitable transport options, whether it is close to your friends, family, or employment, and if the location suits your lifestyle.

Finding and successfully applying for an SDA can be a daunting task, so a Specialist Support Coordinator is an invaluable resource.

 

Your Specialist Support Coordinator will work with you throughout the process, help you find suitable SDA, to achieve your desired outcome. It’s your choice and your life – we’re just here to help!

Currently using another NDIS provider? You can choose to change providers at any time, as long as you follow the notice periods in your service agreement.

Where is Specialist Disability Accommodation in My Plan?

Specialist Disability Accommodation is available to you if it appears in your NDIS plan under CAPITAL Supports.

Where Is This Service Offered?

Specialist Disability Accommodation is currently available across metropolitan Adelaide.  View our office locations here.

Do You Provide Other NDIS Services?

We sure do! Head to our services page to explore all of our supports.
