Empowered Living: Vicki’s Experience with SDA Housing

For Vicki, life before Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) was a daily battle against an inaccessible environment.

Sharing a home that wasn’t wheelchair-friendly with her family meant constant dependence and limited freedom. With the desire for something more accessible, Vicki began to look into SDA housing.

“Once we found out about Enliven and SDA, we got really excited” explains Vicki.  

The idea of living independently while receiving the necessary support and assistance was a beacon of hope for Vicki and her family.

“Before coming here to Kogarah, I was living with my husband and my sister and brother-in-law, Paul. So, we were all together, and the house wasn’t accessible,” Vicki explains. “We couldn’t do much ourselves. I always needed help” she admits.

Enliven offers tailored SDA apartments to help Australians with disabilities live independently. Our dedicated in-house team handles everything from design to tenancy, ensuring a seamless experience. Operating on a ‘friendly landlord model’ by putting tenants at the heart of what we do, we maintain open communication and ensure your comfort.

Now, living in the units at Kogarah with Enliven’s support, Vicki enjoys a newfound sense of freedom and autonomy. “I’m definitely happy with the outcome,” she shares. Vicki’s story is not just about finding a place to live; it’s about finding a home where independence, accessibility, and support come together to create a space to thrive.
