Support residents with significant physical needs who require a high level of support
High Physical Support homes are designed to support residents with significant physical needs who require a high level of support. These homes have the features of the Fully Accessible home along with extra structural provisions for things like ceiling hoists and 950mm clear opening width doors to habitable rooms. Assistive technology can play an important role in this kind of home with emergency power solutions being especially critical where the welfare of residents is at risk.
Extra structural provisions for things like ceiling hoists are important, as are large rooms, wide doorways and hallways.
As with the other categories, access to outdoor areas and designing a house that fits in with the rest of the neighbourhood are essential to creating a satisfying home life for residents.
