Supported Independent Living Overview
Supported Independent Living (SIL) is help and/or supervision of daily tasks to help participants live as independently as possible, while building their skills. It is the paid personal supports and is most commonly used in shared living arrangements.
At Care Plan Management, SIL is one of many support options participants can receive. When considering if SIL is the best option for a participant, the following are considered:
- the participant’s goals for their potential home and living arrangements, and the support required for daily tasks to assist in living as independently as possible
- if alternative supports may be a better option
- if the participant has significant support needs that require person-to-person supports, and what supports they already receive
- if the NDIA decides the support meets the reasonable and necessary criteria for SIL funding.
The Operational Guideline for SIL explains how decisions are made about SIL supports, providing more clarity and transparency for participants and providers.
This Operational Guideline is written in a new more accessible style. This is part of our commitment to making the Scheme easier to understand.
