Moving into a new home is a milestone moment for anyone, filled with excitement and new beginnings. For individuals with disability, the lengthy, often complicated process involves the assistance and guidance of several people to ensure such a move.

For three men, Participants of the NDIS and customers of Nulsen Disability Services, a move to Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) in Spearwood, in Perth’s southern suburbs, was made possible by Sana Living’s brand new two 2-bedroom High Physical Support homes for sharing.

Given the significant efforts of the various people and organisations involved in providing both the in-home supports and this new disability accommodation, as well as facilitating a seamless transition for the three tenants, it made sense to celebrate the occasion as the men embark on this exciting chapter in their lives.


On Thursday 30th May, Sana Living, alongside Nulsen Disability Services, officially opened the homes to the new tenants. Invited guests included the immediate neighbours, Participant’s family members and therapists, builders and suppliers of the home, and local council members.

Opening the event with a Welcome to Country, was local Elder Brett Collard, a Wadjuk Baladong Nyongar man who has lived in Fremantle most of his life.

Following Brett’s welcome, Bree Lawrence, CEO of Sana Living, thanked everyone involved in building the home, acknowledging the high quality workmanship and attention to detail from Velocity Builders, and the enormous efforts of the team at Sana Living.

Bree also wished the new tenants and the team at Nulsen Disability Services all the best in the new home.

She said, “We are thrilled to have worked alongside Nulsen Disability Services so that these beautiful houses can become well-loved homes for the gentleman who are supported by Nulsen.”

Caroline Watt, CEO of Nulsen Disability Services praised the stunning new homes that Sana Living had provided and thanked everyone involved for the work leading up to opening day.

Guests then heard from the mayor of the City Of Cockburn, His Worship, the Mayor Logan K. Howlett, JP, who touched on the significance of the new tenants and the home itself in enriching the local community. He acknowledged the neighbours who had been invited and noted that this is a positive new chapter for the immediate community.

Finally, with the help of Mayor Howlett, Danny, one of the men moving in, cut the ribbon, officially opening these beautiful SDA homes.


Moving into Specialist Disability Accommodation represents more than just a change of address; it represents a significant milestone in someone’s life. A move to NDIS housing provides opportunities for greater independence, improved access to support services, peace of mind for Participants and their families, and a sense of community inclusion.

During the lead-up to a move into a disability home requires meticulous planning, collaboration, and dedicated support. Both Sana Living and Nulsen Disability Services are committed to creating accessible, inclusive living environments.  With like-minded values, our mission is to create possibilities for people living with disability to enjoy more confidence, independence, community, and fulfillment.

For the three men who have now moved, and with the support of Nulsen Disability Services, this Sana Living SDA home in Perth’s south will do exactly that. We look forward to seeing them thrive in their new home.

In celebrating this milestone for the new tenants, we not only emphasised the significance of this move for them, but we also acknowledged their determination and resilience, reinforcing the importance of choice, control, and a sense of belonging in a community.

At Sana Living, we offer a range of high-end disability housing options across WA, SA and QLD.  For more information on our homes and how we can help you, please contact our friendly team today.
