You don’t have to feel helpless in your own home

Nobody likes feeling dependent when they need a bit of extra help. You want to stay in control, making your own decisions and living life your way. It’s about finding that sweet spot where you get the help you need without thinking of yourself as helpless. This way, you can maintain your confidence and keep your independence as your top priority. After all, even when you need support, it’s important to feel in charge and still be able to call the shots.

When generic care seems impersonal

It’s frustrating when care feels one-size-fits-all, isn’t it? You want someone who takes the time to know you, so your support feels just right for you. It’s about feeling comfortable and well-looked after in your own home. But it’s tough when you end up with generic care that doesn’t quite fit. You deserve support that’s as unique as you are, personalised to your specific needs, so you can live life on your terms, feeling safe and content in your own space.

What is in-home support SIL?

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is a type of NDIS support that helps participants live as independently as possible while receiving the necessary support in their own home. In-home support SIL focuses on providing assistance with daily tasks, personal care, and skill development within the comfort of the participant’s own living space.

Eligibility for in-home support SIL is determined by the NDIS. It is typically available to participants who have higher support needs and require assistance with daily living activities. To access SIL, participants must have an approved NDIS plan that includes funding for Supported Independent Living.

In-home support SIL can include a range of services tailored to the individual’s needs, such as assistance with personal care, household tasks, meal preparation, medication management, and support with community participation. The goal is to enhance the participant’s independence and quality of life.

In-home support SIL is specifically designed for individuals with higher support needs who require ongoing, daily assistance. Unlike other NDIS supports that may focus on specific tasks or activities, SIL provides comprehensive support that covers all aspects of daily living within the participant’s home.

To access in-home support SIL services, you’ll need to have an NDIS plan that includes funding for SIL. Once your plan is approved, you can work with your support coordinator to find a suitable SIL provider who offers in-home support. They can help you connect with the right services and ensure that your support plan aligns with your goals and needs.

A support coordinator plays a crucial role in in-home support SIL by helping you navigate the NDIS system and connect with the appropriate services. They can assist in developing your support plan, finding and engaging SIL providers, and ensuring that your services are tailored to your individual needs. They also help monitor your support arrangements and make adjustments as needed.

Yes, in-home support SIL can be customised to your specific needs. Your SIL provider will work with you to develop a personalised support plan that addresses your unique requirements and goals. This plan can include a variety of services, such as personal care, household assistance, and support with community participation, all tailored to help you live as independently as possible.

If your support needs change, your in-home support SIL services can be adjusted to meet your new requirements. It’s important to communicate any changes in your needs to your SIL provider and support coordinator. They can help reassess your situation and make necessary modifications to your support plan to ensure that you continue to receive the appropriate level of care and assistance.

To make sure that your in-home support SIL services are effective, it’s important to maintain open communication with your SIL provider and support coordinator. Regularly review your support plan, provide feedback on the services you’re receiving, and discuss any concerns or changes in your needs. Additionally, setting clear goals and regularly monitoring your progress can help ensure that your support services are aligned with your desired outcomes.
