Life Care's Supported Independent Living Overview Melbourne

Supported Independent Living (SIL) offers a professional support worker which can help you carry out daily chores. The goal is to assist participants in honing their abilities to live independently. We offer NDIS Supported Independent Living service for NDIS participants who require ongoing care, usually 24 hours a day, to live on their own. Our support can take the shape of shared living where people live in a group, or living independently in the participant’s home, with the assistance of getting required personal support from our team. As one of the top NDIS SIL providers in Melbourne, Life Care Solutions is here to help!

Supported Independent Living

What is supporting independent living?

Independent living enables individuals with disabilities to have equitable access to all of society’s benefits. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) aims to give persons with a permanent and substantial disability more choice and control over their life. If one of your goals is to live more independently, supporting independent living NDIS with us could be a great option for you. We provide modern shared houses in safe neighbourhoods with support workers there to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Here are some significant SIL NDIS advantages:

1. Becoming self-sufficient:

Moving into your own space helps you make independent decisions and live the life you want. However, what if you require assistance to live independently? Life Care Solutions has skilled and trained professionals who can assist you with:

  • Personal hygiene, such as showering and dressing
  • Cooking, cleaning, gardening, and laundry
  • Budgeting and household management assistance
  • Social and communication skills development
  • Overnight assistance such as sleepovers

When you get support from our team, you have the independence that you desire with a reliable support worker to help you if you need it. Of course, your family and friends are welcome to visit you at any time!

2. Liberty and security:

Everyone must strike a balance between freedom and safety. While you will share the common spaces of the house with the other residents, your new bedroom will be your sanctuary. You will have the flexibility to arrange and decorate it as you see fit. A minimum of one support staff is on-site 24 hours a day to assist the residents. Our support workers are trained in reacting to emergencies and protecting the safety of house members.

3. Required assistance:

While you may be excited about your new house and independence, you may also be concerned about being away from your family or caregiver. Everyone who moves out of their parents’ house requires time to build life skills and confidence. Our team is not only there to assist you with practical duties but also to listen to you, understand your priorities, and help you accomplish your life goals.
