NDIS Disability care services

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a key component of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia. SIL is designed to provide support for individuals with significant disabilities who require assistance to live more independently. The goal of SIL is to enable people with disabilities to live in a home of their choice, with the necessary support tailored to their specific needs.

Key features of NDIS Supported Independent Living include:

Accommodation Support:

SIL provides funding for individuals to live in a shared home or apartment. The type of accommodation can vary based on individual preferences and needs.

Personalized Support Services:

Participants receive support services based on their unique requirements. This may include assistance with daily living activities, personal care, meal preparation, and household tasks.

24/7 Support:

Depending on the individual’s needs, SIL can provide 24/7 support to ensure assistance is available around the clock.

Choice and Control:

Participants have the flexibility to choose their preferred living arrangements and the level of support required. This includes the ability to choose their housemates and the location of their home.

Independence and Skill Development:

SIL aims to promote independence by supporting individuals in developing and maintaining life skills. This may include skills related to cooking, budgeting, and community engagement.

Individualized Plans:

SIL is included as part of an individual’s NDIS plan. The plan is developed based on the person’s goals, aspirations, and support needs, ensuring a personalized approach.

Regular Reviews:

NDIS plans, including SIL, are subject to regular reviews to ensure that the support provided aligns with the individual’s evolving needs and goals.

It’s important to note that SIL is one of the ways the NDIS supports individuals with disabilities, and the specific details of the support provided can vary based on the individual’s circumstances. The NDIS is designed to be flexible and person-centered, allowing for tailored solutions to meet the diverse needs of participants.
