Housing partnership to meet the complex needs of Western Australians.

Leading disability services provider Nulsen Disability Services is partnering with specialist disability housing provider Sana Living to create a range of housing options for Western Australians with complex needs which combine architectural style with the latest assistive technology.

As part of the collaboration Sana will build 10 houses in Spearwood and Gosnells that will be home to more than 30 people, many with high physical support needs. Nulsen Disability Services Chief Executive Officer Caroline Watt said teaming up with Sana Living reflected Nulsen’s commitment to offering participants choice and control, by keeping the needs of people with disability at the forefront of decision-making.

“Our current property portfolio at Nulsen consists of 55 locations across the metropolitan area. We are proud to be the Supported Independent Living Provider in Sana’s award-winning homes.” Ms Watt said.

Sana Living and Nulsen have been working with participants and families from existing Nulsen homes on the design of the properties. On Wednesday, some will be given the chance to experience a virtual walk-through in Balcatta, to include all of the floorplans which will be projected at actual scale.

Sana Living Chief Executive Michael Keenan said the company was very pleased to be partnering with Nulsen to build specialist disability accommodation which includes class-leading design and utilises the latest technologies to enhance people’s lives. “We know that the right living environment leads to better health and lifestyle outcomes,” Mr Keenan said. “We design our homes to boost function and we are thrilled to be working with Nulsen and their participants to adapt the homes to meet their individual needs and aspirations.”

Advantages of living in Sana Living’s Specialist Disability Accommodation include homes that are fully accessible and surrounded by amenity and contemporary, stylish designs that escape any ‘institutional feel’ and creates a place to call home. The homes also provide the ultimate in function and comfort with the latest assistive technology installations for greater independence.

“At Nulsen we have been enriching the lives of people with disability for more than 68 years and are recognised for our excellence in the provision of supported independent living,” Ms Watt said.

The first of the homes is scheduled for completion in March 2023.
