Supported Independent Living (SIL):
Supported Independent Living (SIL) is one type of support or supervision with daily tasks to help you live as independently as possible, while building your skills.
SIL is the paid personal supports. It includes things like having a person to help with personal care tasks, or cooking meals. SIL can help build these skills too, so you can be more independent.
Supports included in SIL
• Support with supervision, safety and security
• Assistance with personal care tasks
• Assistance with capacity building tasks (meal prep and cooking, cleaning, routine development, etc.)
• Behaviour support and social skill development
• Administration of medication
• Support for medical appointments
• Community access that is not routine or regular (for example, support to complete personal tasks)
• Support to get to and from community access activities (where this is the participant’s preference)
We provide NDIS participants with community access such as:
- The provision of accessible public or community transport for people with disability can reduce the need for them to use taxis and the associated costs of taxi vouchers.
- The design of shopping centres, accessible to public or community transport, enables people with disability who can use public transport to be independent and shop for themselves. They don’t have to rely on others to shop on their behalf.
- The provision of orientation and mobility services for people with moderate levels of vision impairment can reduce the likelihood of them falling or having accidents, leading to further disability or impairment.
- It creates better networks among people and breaks down stereotypes. It can promote economic and social participation
Development of daily living and life skills focuses on training and development activities undertaken by the customer or their carer to increase their ability to live as autonomously as possible.
Example of daily life skills are:
- decision-making and problem-solving;
- creative thinking (see also: lateral thinking) and critical thinking;
- communication and interpersonal skills;
- self-awareness and empathy;
- assertiveness and equanimity; and.
- resilience and coping with emotions and coping with stress.
NDIS plan management is the way the funding in your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan is managed. Whenever participants access a service using their NDIS plan, a financial transaction is made. Every transaction made using the funds in their plan has to follow the rules of the NDIS and be tracked and accounted for. Plan management is the choice participants make about who is responsible for tracking their budgets and paying your service providers.
The role of a Support Coordinator is to connect participants with an NDIS plan to supports and services in the community. Our role as Coordination of Supports is to compliment your life and help put your NDIS plan into action. This will allow your support coordinator to manage those resources effectively to get the best outcome from your plan.
Community health nurses work with NDIS participants to help prevent disease, maintain health and treat any existing health problems. Community nursing aims to support and maintain patient independence, safety and healthy lifestyle, at the same time as providing assistance to carers.
