FAQ

What is Shared Accommodation?

Shared Accommodation refers to houses in the community where a small number of people living with disability share a home, and supports from a disability service provider.

Who is it for?

Shared accommodation is for anyone aged 18 and over with a disability. Rocky Bay has a wide selection of locations and housing options, from high needs care to more independent living, and we work hard to find you the home that’s right for you, in every way. Not quite ready to move out full time? Rocky Bay Guest Houses offer short term respite when you’re looking for a break, or a means to trial living independently as you transition to supported care. Take a look at Rocky Bay’s Guest Houses here.

Where is the service located?

We have group homes located in the following suburbs:

  • Balga
  • Bassendean
  • Bayswater
  • Como
  • Cooloongup
  • Dianella
  • Hamilton Hill
  • Karawara
  • Karrinyup
  • Lockridge
  • Morley
  • Mosman Park
  • Thornlie
  • Yangebup.
What funding is available?

To be eligible for Rocky Bay’s Supported Accommodation, you will need to have NDIS SIL (Supported Independent Living) funding. You may also access this service if you are eligible or have the ability to pay through a compensable insurance scheme or private fee for service. If you don’t have SIL currently in your plan, we can help with that too!

Are there any other payments I am responsible for?

Yes, payments for rent and amenities will be required, however it will differ for each option. Our representative will be able to talk you through the details. As a rule, we do not charge more than 75% of your pension income.

Do I have to sign a contract?

If you decide to move into one of our homes, you will need to sign a Service and Rental Agreement. These agreements will be reviewed annually.

Does Rocky Bay support people with all types of disability?

Yes and we assess each individual to make sure we have the expertise and requirements to ensure full support can be provided.

How do I choose a home?

When you contact us about our accommodation, we will discuss with you in detail about:

  • Your support requirements
  • Where you would like to live
  • and ideally who you would like to live with

We will then determine if we have any vacancies that you may find suitable.

If you decide you would like to explore these options, we will arrange a meeting with you to gain a more in depth understanding of yourself, your wants and needs.

At the end of the meeting, we will all decide whether to progress to the next stage to ensure the accommodation will meet all of your requirements and requests. Once agreed, a visit to the property and introduction to other residence and staff will happen.

What if there is nothing suitable available?

For peace of mind, we are able to keep your details on our waitlist and let you know if any vacancies arise that are suitable for your needs. This may include any new SDA developments that Rocky Bay is currently developing.

How do I make sure I have choice and control over my everyday life?

When it’s time to move in, we will work with you to develop a support plan, unique to your personal needs. With your permission, this will be shared with all of your support workers. Even in shared living options, we ensure that each individual’s bespoke needs are met. We encourage people to make choices and decisions on a daily basis.

Who makes sure I am happy and that my support workers are performing well?

We believe it is very important to ensure that managers are accessible to you. Each house has a dedicated Team Leader who is responsible for everyday operations of your services. Team leaders are normally on site at least 2 days per week.

If you would prefer to talk to someone else, we have a Customer Engagement Team, who can be contacted 8am – 5pm, Monday – Friday.

We also recognise that sometimes things happen overnight or during a weekend, a Team Leader may not always be available. To cover for this, we have a dedicated team of After Hours Co-ordinators, who can be on site in less than an hour to deal with any issues that may arise. They also provide advice and support over the telephone.
