How NDIS Supported Independent Living Can Empower You

Author : Shira Joseph | Published On : 19 Mar 2024

Living independently can be a major goal for many people with a disability. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) offers support to help you achieve this goal through Supported Independent Living (SIL).

What Is Supported Independent Living?

SIL provides funding for assistance with daily tasks in your own home or a shared living environment. This can include help with:

  • Personal care (dressing, showering, etc.)
  • Meal preparation
  • Medication management
  • Household chores (cleaning, laundry)
  • Transport and mobility
  • Building skills and independence

The support is designed to be flexible and tailored to your individual needs and goals. The aim is to empower you to live as independently as possible.

Advantages of Supported Independent Living

There are many advantages to choosing SIL, including:

  • Increased independence: SIL allows you to live in your own home and make your own choices about your daily routine.
  • Improved skills and confidence: With support, you can develop the skills you need to manage daily tasks and live more independently.
  • Greater social connection: SIL can help you connect with others and participate in your community.
  • Peace of mind: Knowing that support is available can give you and your family peace of mind.

Types of SIL Accommodation

There are two main types of SIL accommodation:

  • Individual living: You live in your own home or apartment and receive support workers who visit you as needed.
  • Shared living: You share a house or apartment with other NDIS participants and have access to on-site support staff.

The right choice for you depends on what you want and like.
