Living independently is an important milestone for any individual in society. When it comes to people with disabilities, they may need some extra support to live on their own and manage everyday life. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) makes it possible for its participants to be independent at home through Supported Independent Living (SIL) service. Independent living is crucial for people with disabilities as it will help them to improve their decision-making skills and give them the freedom to conduct their lives in their own way. Hence, Supported Independent Living (SIL) continues to be a vital support for many of the participants.
Supported Independent Living (SIL) entails assistance or supervision with routine activities, such as taking care of oneself, showering, getting dressed for the day, meal preparation and eating. It is a support which enables the participants to live as independently as possible while developing their abilities. That means, over time, the participants will become more capable to carry out these activities with less help from others. The majority of the participants who have SIL funding in their NDIS plan reside with housemates who also have SIL funding and share the SIL accommodation support. Though SIL funding is available for some participants even if they live alone, there are better home and living options funded by the NDIS for such individuals depending on their disability needs.
We provides SIL services to participants with higher support needs around the clock. Our trained and skilled support workers provide 24/7 assistance including overnight support.
