Supported Independent Living


SIL at Attainable Care

NDIS Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a funding category under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia, designed to provide support for individuals with disabilities who require assistance with daily living activities to live as independently as possible. SIL offers a range of supports that cater to the individual’s needs, preferences, and goals, enabling them to live in a home-like environment while receiving the necessary care.

SIL supports can include:

  • Assistance with daily tasks: This may involve help with personal care activities such as showering, dressing, and grooming, as well as meal preparation, household chores, and medication management.

  • Skill development: SIL supports may also include training and skill development to help individuals enhance their daily living skills and become more independent.

  • Community participation: SIL services can facilitate social and community engagement, helping individuals access recreational activities, educational opportunities, and employment.

  • Overnight support: Depending on the individual’s needs, SIL can provide overnight support, including sleepover or active night-time assistance.

  • Behavior support and management: For individuals with complex needs, SIL may offer behavior support and management services to help them manage their emotions and actions more effectively.

It’s important to note that SIL funding is separate from Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) funding, which covers the physical housing needs of people with disabilities. While SDA focuses on the accessibility and adaptability of the living environment, SIL is centered around the provision of support services to help individuals live independently within their home
