The National Disability Insurance Scheme plays a vital role in supporting the independent living journeys of people with disabilities while celebrating their unique goals and individual support needs. The NDIS encourages its participants to live their lives to the fullest through a person-centred approach. The support and services funded by the NDIS also emphasise the importance of capacity building and community engagement. Supported Independent Living (SIL) is one type of support that enables participants to have choice and control over their journey towards independence. This paves the way for a more inclusive society where everyone can achieve their home and living goals despite their disability. Supported Independent Living provides access to assistance from trained support workers who will help participants with higher support needs to manage their daily living activities such as personal care, cooking, cleaning and various other everyday chores.
These NDIS support workers closely work with the SIL participants to identify their strengths and develop their independent living skills. Living independently goes beyond being able to
manage day-to-day activities. Pursuing one’s hobbies, exploring fun activities and engaging with the community is also part of independent living. SIL participants can connect with their
communities and participate in activities that they like with assistance from support workers. The NDIS focuses on diverse aspects of a participant’s life when it comes to supporting their
independent living journeys.
Aussie Life Care believes that individuals with disabilities can live as independently as they wish with the help of various NDIS support and services. As a registered NDIS SIL service provider, we have worked closely with many participants and helped them achieve their independent living goals. We provide tailored support that best aligns with the goals and aspirations of our participants. Contact us today to know more about our Supported Independent Living services.
