The four house Freedom Housing model satisfies the criteria required for compliance with the Objects and Principles of the NDIS Act 2013, and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

Our privacy is preserved by ensuring that home carers observe strict protocols. These aim to minimise disruption to the household. We may elect to maintain a high level of privacy, or we may become friends and acquaintances with our neighbours. The choice is entirely ours. Personal privacy and dignity are highly respected in Freedom Housing.  

The hydrotherapy pool and physiotherapy room provide us with ready access to physiotherapy as often as we require it.

The home carers are there at our invitation. They are answerable to us individually and to the Key Committee. Carers may be sole traders or they may be sourced by us (Key Committee) through an agency.
We decide who cares for us, and the manner in which they do so.
 
Prospective carers must first pass the Pam Test*. If after interviewing the carer, we do not feel comfortable with her - and regardless of her formal qualifications - she is not hired.
 
If we subsequently become uncomfortable in her care, her services may be terminated at our request. We are not obliged to accept a carer with whom we do not feel comfortable.
 
 
 
 
* The Pam Test refers to the practice of asking the caregiver candidates to be first interviewed by the recipient of care. If the recipient is happy with the carer, she proceeds to the formal interview stage. Pamela Iliopoulos insisted on this process, rather than automatically accepting formally qualified carers.
