Everything You Need To Know About Supported Independent Living

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a crucial aspect of care for individuals with disabilities. At Path to Independence, we provide personalised SIL services that are designed to empower individuals to live as independently as possible. 

In this latest blog update from the team at Path to Independence, we will explore everything you need to know about SIL, including its definition, eligibility criteria, benefits, and the specific SIL services offered by Path to Independence. Let’s get started!

What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?

Supported Independent Living refers to a range of services that aid individuals with disabilities in living independently in their own homes. It encompasses assistance or supervision with everyday tasks such as personal care, cooking, and managing household tasks. The primary goal of SIL is to support individuals in living as independently as possible while enhancing their life skills.

Who is Eligible for SIL?

Eligibility for SIL services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is determined based on individual needs. Generally, individuals with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to perform daily activities independently may qualify for SIL. To ascertain eligibility, an assessment is conducted by the NDIS, considering the individual’s unique circumstances and support requirements.

Benefits of SIL
