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.

Concept design for Freedom Housing now being developed in Sale (VIC) by George Gray Centre: more.


Freedom Housing fully complies with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and with all the relevant Objects and Principles of the NDIS Act 2013: Australian Federal Parliament. 

Freedom Housing is the recipient of the Australian Human Rights Commission Award for Business (2013), and is endorsed by the Department of Health and Human Services (VIC). It is currently the most human rights compliant housing model: PDF.

This world-first innovative design is disruptive. It displaces demand for nursing homes; group accommodation; respite homes; supported accommodation; retirement villages; rehabilitation facilities; hospice care; and hospital care.

The new (non-institutional) paradigm of privately owned 24/7 high-care housing has arrived!

Freedom Housing is just that: freedom!

SUPPORT FOR 'FREEDOM HOUSING' STYLE HOUSING FROM THE NDIA

SDA: Special Disability Accommodation

NDIA statement:

"Ensuring that people with disability have real choice and control over where they live and who they live with is an integral component in supporting NDIS participants to live ordinary lives.

For that choice and control to exist, the supply of innovative, affordable and accessible housing needs to increase.

The prices and processes contained in this paper have been designed to encourage the growth of that supply, whilst ensuring as smooth as possible transition for people in existing supported accommodation."
