This qualitative inquiry uses a grounded theory approach to undertake a case study of a specific model of accommodation for a young woman with a disability. The model of accommodation is referred to as the Host Home care model of accommodation and was designed in a collaborative manner with a person-centred focus. While five face-to-face interviews were conducted, this paper focuses on the interview with Opal, the young woman with an intellectual disability. The remaining four interviews were with Opal’s parents and two staff members from the disability-specific organisation that auspiced an individual funding package that supported the Host Home care model of accommodation. Themes that arose from the data analysis identified characteristics of the Host Home model of accommodation from Opal’s perspective. These are presented in this article.
