Supported Independent Living (SIL): Enhancing Quality Of Life

We at Polaris Care specialise in supported independent living (SIL). This type of support involves not only assisting with daily tasks, but also helping NDIS participants live more independently and develop skills.

Our SIL services are not limited to a shared living environment but can be tailored to individual living arrangements. We understand the importance of personalisation, and our services are designed to meet the unique needs of each participant.

We aim to provide the right level of support while promoting autonomy and self-reliance. This support can include assistance with daily tasks, personal care, household chores, and community participation to encourage independence and enhance quality of life.

How To Access Sil Services?

Assessment of Needs: An evaluation determines the participant’s support needs, preferences, and goals. This assessment helps to develop a tailored support plan.
Incorporation into NDIS Plan: Once the support needs are identified, SIL funding can be included in the participant’s NDIS plan. The plan outlines the specific supports required and the associated budget.
Choosing a SIL Provider: Participants can select SIL providers in Melbourne that best meet their needs. It’s essential to research and evaluate potential providers, considering their experience, reputation, and the range of services they offer.
Developing a Support Plan: The chosen provider works with the participant to create a detailed support plan outlining the daily supports, goals, and strategies for achieving greater independence.
Ongoing Review and Adjustment: SIL support plans are regularly reviewed and adjusted as needed to ensure they continue to meet the participant’s evolving needs and goals.
