Supported Independent LivingThe NDIS can fund supports for you in your home to assist you to develop your independent living skills so that you can live as independently as possible.
Design Your Supports In Your Home!
Living the life that we want is as much as anyone of us could wish for.
Supported Independent Living (SIL for short) is there to assist people who have high support needs and who require a significant amount of help throughout the day.
SIL provides you with paid personal supports, which means having someone to help with your personal care tasks like getting out of bed, showering, and getting ready for the day ahead. It could be having someone to cook a meal with and learn a few things in the kitchen while you are at it.
You can live at home with your folks, in a share house, or by yourself, it doesn’t matter when it comes to SIL support. SIL is designed to help you at home while developing your own skills so you can gain more independence in your life. It’s all about choices, it’s all about you.
When you are supported by CSBS for SIL we will start with a conversation about all the things you need to live as independently as possible. Then together we will plan how that will happen with the right level of support, so you stay in control and can manage your day to day tasks with a little help from us.
We also specialise in restrictive practice management with a focus on minimising and eliminating the need to use restrictive practices with a focus on the physical environment as well as support responses and practice.
If you have been funded for SIL in your NDIS Plan and want to work with us to plan your supports, give us a call on 1300 18 11 99 and let’s talk about how we can be part of your story.
Your supports, the way you want them!
