Supported Independent Living
CatholicCare Disability Futures is excited to be expanding its work within the Supported Independent Living (SIL) environment. NDIS funding for Supported Independent Living enables people with disability to live as independently as possible, within their chosen community. It is also sometimes referred to as supported accommodation, as participants share common areas and tasks such as cooking, cleaning and social interaction, as well as having their own personal room.
SIL funding allows you to be supported by a team of trained carers who understand your goals and support you to develop independence in achieving these, as well as assisting you in your personal care requirements. This extends to supports that may be required overnight as well as transport and social outings.
Models of SIL are usually designed to cater specifically for a group of residents (usually 3 to 4 people), however there are a number of alternative set ups that can be supported through SIL funding. We are happy to discuss these with you.
Currently, CatholicCare provides SIL services to residences at Woods Cottage (Lindfield) and Manly House (North Manly) – a Supported Disability Accommodation (SDA) approved site.
