Supported Independent Living (SIL)

Supported Independent Living (SIL) services are designed to empower people with a disability to live more independently. SIL support is suitable for those who have high support needs and wish to retain their independence as much as possible. SIL can be provided to people who would like to live in their family home or with a group of people in a shared home setting.

Types of support services you can access under SIL include:

  • help with daily activities

  • help with personal care

  • domestic support such as cleaning, laundry or cooking

  • support for medical appointments

  • travel assistance

  • social support

  • skills development

Our experienced team can work with you to develop a personalised SIL Roster of Care, that will meet all your needs and help you achieve your goals. 

Community Participation - Our qualified and competent support workers will support you with your appointments and community engagements ensuring your safety and wellbeing.

Hospital to Home Discharge Program - Staying in hospital can be a challenging time. Even more challenging is managing your recovery once you are discharged from hospital. That’s why we are proud to offer our Hospital to Home Discharge Program. We can transiton you to one of our houses until your NDIS plan is in place.

Having the proper care and support and caregivers with the right knowledge, skills and matchingy your other preferences can make a big difference to how well you recover after your hospital stay. Whether you need short-term clinical support such as wound or pain management or help with domestic chores such as grocery shopping and cooking, we’re here for you. Recovering from an illness or injury is not always easy, which is why we take your needs and preferences into account when planning your support and finding the right support worker for you.

Individualised Living Options (ILO) - Many people with a disability may need support to live independently and to interact with their community. But they don’t all want to live in a group home with other people. Individualised Living Options (ILO) puts you in control of your living situation by giving you a choice in how you want to live.

  • Co-residency — You may have a housemate (or housemates) who provides you with care living in your home. 

This care could be on a full-time or part-time basis.

  • Host arrangement — Another person, couple or family ‘hosts’ you in their own home and provides some support.

The host also receives funding from the NDIS Plan to provide this support.

  • Living Alone — You live on your own and receive the support you need.

  • Living Together — You live with someone else you already know.

 This arrangement is similar to how housemates usually find each other and decide to live together.

Life Skills Development - Our extensive experience in the disability sector means we are highly skilled in delivering capacity-building services. We provide reliable, flexible and meaningful support to suit individual needs and goals. We can help you develop a wide range of important life skills including:

  • meal planning and preparation

  • taking care of your health and wellbeing

  • traveling, including road safety and using public transport

  • developing social networks and friendships

  • maintaining your accommodation

  • budgeting and managing finance

  • literacy and numeracy

  • liaising with government departments

  • paying bills

All care is of the highest standard and provided by a registered nurse with experience in the disability sector. We can provide expert care for a full range of services and treatments, including the most complex cases. Some of our services include:

RESPITE   STA/MTA

Short-term accommodation — This option will help you learn new skills so that one day you can live more independently. For children, the focus is on social development and having fun. It’s also suitable for giving families and carers a short break from their caring responsibilities (respite).
Medium-term accommodation — This type of accommodation suits longer-term plans of up to 90 days. It can be used while you wait for home modifications or other disability supports, or if you have been recently discharged from hospital. Medium-term accommodation will allow you to build your daily routine, make friends and develop lifestyle skills within a safe and secure environment.

We can also help you find a private rental if required and can work with you to look for more permanent housing solutions.

Of course, you don’t have to do this on your own. Our friendly, dedicated staff are committed to helping you find the accommodation that is right for you and will work closely with you to do so.
