How Individualised Living Options Can Help You Achieve Independence

Individualised Living Options (ILO) is a powerful support system offered by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia that helps participants achieve greater independence and live life on their terms. ILO funding allows NDIS participants to tailor their living arrangements to their unique needs, preferences, and goals.

At Path to Independence, we understand that one-size-fits-all approaches are not suitable for everyone, which is why we advocate for individualised living options. In this blog, we’ll explore how ILO can help you achieve independence and improve your quality of life.

Freedom to Choose Your Living Arrangements

One of the most significant benefits of ILO is that participants have the freedom to choose where and with whom they want to live. This is particularly important for NDIS participants who want to live independently while still receiving support. With ILO, participants can choose to live in their own home, rent a house or apartment, or live with a host family. They can also choose their roommates, which can be other NDIS participants with shared supports, friends, or family members.

Greater Control Over Your Support Needs

Another advantage of ILO is that participants can have greater control over the type and amount of support they receive. This means that participants can choose the supports that best suit their individual needs and preferences. For example, a participant may require support with daily personal care, such as showering, dressing, and grooming, but not with meal preparation or transportation. With ILO, participants can design their support plan to reflect their unique needs, giving them greater independence and control over their daily lives.

Flexible Funding Options

ILO funding is flexible and can be used in a variety of ways to support participants in achieving their goals. For example, funding can be used to purchase equipment, modifications to their living arrangements, or hire support workers. Participants can also use their funding to access education and training programs or participate in community activities that align with their interests and goals.

Improved Social Connections

ILO can also help participants develop social connections and improve their quality of life. Participants can choose to live with roommates, attend social events, or participate in community activities with others who share similar interests. This can lead to greater socialisation, improved mental health and wellbeing, and a greater sense of community involvement.
