The Freedom Housing design, makes it possible for persons with disabilities, who require some personal care and supervision, and up to 24/7 high care, to live in a normal house - or apartment - with family, friends, housemates, or independently.
Persons with disabilities are able to live in Freedom Housing style homes through every phase of their lives: child; young independent adult; parent; old age, and end-stage: palliative care.
Freedom Housing may also provide care for the elderly (aged care). A mix of care needs may be accommodated under the same roof in a privately owned - or leased - home.
Each house is uniquely designed according to the owner families' preferences for fabric, appearance, lifestyle, and inclusions.
The advent of the NDIS has rendered the Freedom Housing model feasible, and affordable, for the ordinary Australian household. If you have an NDIS care package it may be possible for you and your family - or friends - to live in your own - or in a rented - Freedom Housing home.
Freedom Housing respects human rights; is more efficient; is socially cohesive; is more economical; is more economically productive; and respects the dignity of all.
