Supported Independent Living, (sometimes called “shared accommodation”) is a style of living whereby an individual receives support or supervision throughout daily tasks that they might find challenging. How to live independently with a disability can be a concern for individuals who live with an impairment. Unlike traditional care homes, supported independent living aims to help an individual with disabilities live in the most self-sufficient way possible, developing key skills without removing their independence.
An NDIS support where a person with disabilities can live with others with access to a whole lot of support from daily tasks, personal care to learning life skills!
