Importance of Supported Independent Living

The Importance of Supported Independent Living

Would you like to live more independently and have more control over the way you live? Supported Independent Living (SIL) is NDIS funding that helps people with a disability to live as independently as possible and provides day-to-day support (usually 24/7) that meet your individual requirements. If you’re interested in increasing your life skills and leading a more autonomous and fulfilling life, Supported Independent Living could be perfect for you!

Supported Independent Living Helps You Become More Independent

NDIS core supports like Supported Independent Living are designed to help people living with disabilities to make more of their own decisions and live a more independent lifestyle. One of the key benefits to SIL is that it provides you with autonomy when you want it and support when you need it. That means you can gain the life skills to live independently and always have support from caring and professional staff when you need a helping hand. This is great for those who want to learn how to live independently and manage their own lives

Supported Independent Living Provides Opportunities to Meet New People

One of the many wonderful things about SIL is that it provides plenty of opportunities to meet new people and make new friends. Living in a Supported Independent Living environment arranged by an NDIS provider in Adelaide like CLO is great for meeting people of a similar age, as you’ll share communal areas and that provides lots of opportunities to interact. What’s more, your family and friends can visit you, so you can meet new people and still see your family and friends whenever you like.

Supported Independent Living Provides Tailored Support

As everyone has different needs, SIL provides three levels of support (Lower Needs, Standard Needs and Higher Needs) to ensure your individual requirements are always met. If you need 24/7 support, including overnight support, this level of support is available, and if you need less support later on as you gradually become more independent, that’s easy to arrange. With Supported Independent Living, you’ll always get the support you need.
