From the time Sana Living : Specialist Disability Accommodation was born in January this year, and even back to early 2019 when Sana Living was operating as a team of 4 under the name of Platinum, their goal has always been to partner with people needing specialised disability accommodation, and to create opportunities for their independence.

Yesterday, Sana Living (now with a team of 13 and still growing) was officially launched by the Hon Stephen Dawson, MLC, Minister for Disability Services, with CEO Michael Keenan at one of the many properties set to not only change the way those with a disability live, but create a new standard for all SDA.

Yesterday’s address by Minister Dawson also marked one of the first SDA homes in Perth to be complete.

With more sites under construction and others in the design stage, Sana Living currently have enough properties in the development pipeline to house 138 people with disabilities across Perth and regional Western Australia.

Other guests included those from the Disability support sector, and NDIS particpants awaiting their Sana Living SDA to be completed, some of whom had visited the home during the various stages of construction.The Minster then carried out a ribbon cutting – concluding the opening and marking Sana Living officially open.

For many in attendance, it was their first time seeing inside one of Sana Living’s cleverly designed homes. As usual, the remarks and observations from first time viewers was that the home felt like a home, and not a facility or institution, but with even more accessible features than any ‘accessible housing’ accommodation they’d seen before.
