Group Homes for Disabled Adults

Maple has many support options for people with disabilities depending on their level of need. Group Homes are frequently an excellent option for people living with a disability that need professional support that can’t be provided in another setting.

Whether you or your loved one experiences a disability, we have Group Homes available with the help of funding from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to ensure you can live your life to the fullest. With Maple, a better, more inclusive future lies ahead!

What are Disability Group Homes?

A Disability Group Home, also known as a shared home or shared accommodation, is a home for people who are living with a disability, a mental illness, or a health condition requiring support. They are designed and organised to provide the assistance, support, and supervision that people need to live their life as independently as possible.

Maple’s NDIS Group Homes for disabled individuals come in different types, each designed to address distinct levels of care and support.

High-intensity support homes

Our high-intensity support homes are typically designed for people living with complex medical needs or severe disabilities. These homes offer 24/7 care, often in a single-story facility equipped with specialised medical equipment and a team of healthcare professionals. Residents may have private rooms or share multi bedroom units to accommodate their intensive care requirements.

Special needs group homes

Special needs group homes are designed for people who require a higher level of support and supervision but may not require the same level of medical needs as those in high-intensity support homes. These homes are often set up in residential neighbourhoods and can include a mix of single-story houses, units or villas.

Group homes for seniors

Group homes for seniors cater to older adults who need assistance with daily living activities but wish to maintain some level of independence. These homes can be single-story houses or apartment style units. They offer a sense of community for residents while providing services like meal preparation, medication management and housekeeping.

Children’s group homes

Children’s group homes offer care and support for children and adolescents with various needs, it can also include those in the foster care system and with behavioural challenges. These homes may vary in size and layout, with some resembling traditional family homes and others having multiple bedrooms or units to accommodate several children.

Public and community housing

Public and community housing is for people with lower medical and support needs. Houses can include modifications such as accessible bathrooms and entrance ramps for heightened independence. These houses may be single-story houses, townhomes or apartment style units. Residents often share common spaces while providing privacy, and support for daily activities as needed.

How Can Disability Group Homes Help Someone With A Disability?

NDIS Group Homes are designed to allow people with disabilities to live together safely and comfortably in a social home environment with the assistance of skilled staff who are on hand 24 hours a day. Residents can make friends and be a part of a welcoming community, while staying connected to the wider community and enjoying the benefits of shared living.

The goal of shared accommodations in a Disability Group Home is to enable residents to achieve their goals and live their life to the fullest by providing the varying levels of support they may need with everyday life.

Does NDIS pay for Disability Group Homes?

The NDIS funding for accommodation in a group home for people living with disabilities is only available to those with high-level functional impairments or high support needs under SDA. SDA funding is used for housing, not services or supports. You will need to determine if you or your loved one qualify for the SDA funding, SIL funding, or both, through the NDIA’s assessment and planning process.

The funding under SIL supports the assistance and services needed in these situations rather than the costs of the accommodations themselves (as is the case with SDA funding). Expenses such as rent, groceries, utilities, telephones, and internet access, as well as general household items such as furniture, appliances, and cooking utensils are the responsibility of the participant or may be supported through other government or non-government programs. Assistive devices or aids can be supported through NDIS SIL funding

How Can I Access NDIS Disability Group Homes?

The NDIS relies on evidence and advice from Allied Health Professionals to determine if a participant is eligible for SDA or SIL funding. The areas that health professionals must address are the following:

  • The significant impact of the participant’s disability on their mobility, self care, and cognition.
  • The type of housing that would be appropriate for the participant.
  • The other types of supports required for the participant to achieve their housing goals.

During your planning meeting, you need to demonstrate to your planner why accommodation is reasonable and necessary to your individual situation. Feel free to reach out to our support team at Maple for any advice and questions you may have surrounding the process.

Do I Qualify For NDIS Disability Group Homes?

There are many factors that the NDIS considers before deciding on your available funding. The support service needs to be reasonable and necessary to help you achieve your goals, purpose, and aspirations.


The NDIS will fund SIL assistance for group home residents who have high support needs and require a significant amount if help throughout the day. You will be eligible if it is deemed the most appropriate support that can be provided to you. Accommodation funding is considered through SDA when there is high-level functional impairments or high support needs.


The amount that the NDIS funds for you will depend on the amount of support you need to live as independently as possible. Arrange a planning meeting with us and we can discuss what supports you may need in and around the home and help you optimise your NDIS Plan and other funding options.
