Trusted NDIS Supported Independent Living Services in Melbourne

NDIS Supported Independent Living is a support service that assists you with daily duties so that you can live as independently as possible while simultaneously developing life skills. It is a paid support package that includes assistance with daily household or personal duties such as cleaning, cooking, showering, or shopping assistance. Individuals with impairments who live independently may have equal access to all of society’s benefits but require some help to make the most of it. The NDIS supported living strives to provide them with greater options and control over their lives.

For years, Sheltering Arms has assisted people with disabilities, elders, adults, and youth. We are Melbourne’s premier provider of NDIS independent living and accommodation services.

Supporting independent living NDIS with us could be an excellent alternative if one of your goals is to live more independently. We provide shared houses facilities in safe neighbourhoods too, with support staff available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

How Can We Support You for NDIS Independent Living?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) recommends supported independent living for participants over the age of 18 who have high support needs and require a large amount of assistance throughout the day. Supported Independent Living (SIL) is also provided in shared living situations.

Living independently allows an individual to grow and develop personally as well as become a contributing member of the society. They will learn important life skills and become familiar with many situations. Living together with people also improves understanding and social interaction. It fosters co-dependence, trust and builds stronger relationships which can last a lifetime.

The NDIS supported living services we provide are specially designed to cater to this aspect. We have provisions for participants who wish to live on their own and for those who wish to live in a shared space with similar individuals. Each plan is highly customisable to suit the individual’s needs. This ensures satisfaction on the part of the participant and makes for memorable experiences.

Our NDIS Supported Independent Living methodology involves assisting participants with the following:

  • Room for living

  • Personal care like showering and dressing

  • Assisting with daily tasks

  • Help with budgeting and household management

  • Contribute to social and community participation

Each person residing in the house receives help tailored to their specific needs. The majority of NDIS participants who receive SIL support live with similar needs as housemates. Sheltering Arms focuses on getting to know the participants and their needs. We carefully match them with the appropriate support workers, who assist the participants in becoming more independent and self-sufficient. Every NDIS supported living model is designed around the individual’s requirements for maximum assistance. Some notable Supported independent living NDIS benefits include:

  • Developing self-sufficiency

  • More flexibility and control over your everyday activities and schedule
