New Disability Housing, Lilly Pilly, Opens in Dee Why

Did you know that Lilly Pilly, a newly-opened purpose-built disability housing facility, has opened along McIntosh Road in Dee Why? 

The special home, developed by Good Housing, has five villas designed for people with disability to enjoy independent living. Each villa has a carefully planned open space for a bedroom, bathroom, and spacious kitchen. The villas also open up to a private outdoor space, where residents may enjoy their personal hobbies and activities. 

Residents also get to share a communal area where they can socialise with each other or welcome their guests. The facility is fully wheelchair accessible with an on-site manager and a 24-hour support staff.

Lilly Pilly has been fitted with smart technologies, voice-activated features, and ergonomically designed furniture. 

The villas are open to tenants 18 to 64-year old individuals who have NDIS support. 

Good Housing Co-founder and Chief Innovator Sam Graiche was motivated to create a disability housing solution because of his nephew with special needs.

“We could see the impact on quality of life for my sister and the strain that it put on her relationship with other members of the family while caring for her son, so we thought that this was critically required and we set out on a mission to produce something better than what we could find in the market,” Mr Graiche said. 

With Lilly Pilly now established, Good Housing has further plans to build similar disability housing solutions in Australia within the next five years. The hope is that these NDIS registered disability accommodations will radically improve the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of residents.
