Central Coast residents living with disability will be presented with 20 life-changing opportunities, when two new Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) sites open in Gosford in September.
Ability Apartments Gosford Central and Ability Apartments Showground Road are being delivered by SDA providers, Ability SDA, with Coastlink appointed as the Supported Independent Living (SIL) Provider.
Coastlink CEO John Davis said the state-of-the-art independent living options were all about enhancing lives.
“Both sites feature 10 specially designed apartments peppered throughout larger residential buildings, allowing independent living integrated within surrounding communities,” Davis said.
“At Coastlink, our aim is to improve the daily lives of the people we assist, and to allow every individual to maintain independence and connection with their communities, so this integration was a very important aspect for us.
“Being selected as the Supported Independent Living (SIL) provider for these sites means we will be on-hand to assist residents 24 hours a day
“Once moved in, residents will receive the support they need at any time of the day or night thanks to cutting-edge assistive technology directly connected to our onsite care team.”
Ability SDA Co-director, Paul Simmons, said the company was impressed with Coastlink’s long-term commitment to the disability sector and its vision to help people live a life of choice and inclusion.
“For those reasons particularly, Coastlink was selected as SIL provider for both sites and we’re excited to begin this adventure together,” Simmons said.
Each apartment is generously sized with extra wide doorways and circulation spaces.
Accommodation costs will be subsidised by the NDIS for eligible residents.
