Daily Tasks and Shared Living

Independent Living Assistance with Sydney Community Wellbeing

Sydney Community Wellbeing provides essential support to individuals aiming to live independently through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). We understand the importance of daily tasks and shared living arrangements, and our team is dedicated to helping participants achieve their home and living goals.

Supports for Independent Living (SIL) in Sydney

Assisting individuals in independent living is a vital aspect of our services. SIL involves providing support with daily tasks such as meal preparation and personal care, fostering independence and skill development. It caters to individuals with high support needs who require assistance round-the-clock, including overnight support.

Who Can Benefit from Supported Independent Living?

Supported Independent Living is particularly beneficial for individuals with disabilities who require significant daily assistance, including those living with other NDIS participants. Whether you live alone or prefer shared living arrangements, SIL can be tailored to meet your needs.

Funding and Support Coordination

It's essential to note that funding for supported independent living cannot be utilised for rent or food expenses. However, our team at Sydney Community Wellbeing can assist you in navigating funding options and coordinating support services. We work closely with healthcare providers to ensure comprehensive care plans are in place for our participants.

How does Supported Independent Living (SIL) function?

Answer: SIL entails a shared living arrangement accommodating 2 to 7 NDIS participants, providing round-the-clock support for individuals with disabilities. This arrangement assists residents with daily tasks, and each resident's funding is allocated based on the support they require.

Can Sydney Community Wellbeing provide in-home support?

Answer: Sydney Community Wellbeing offers both group and individualised care to assist you with daily chores within your home. Our services encompass meal preparation, personal hygiene maintenance, medication management, public transportation guidance, socialisation opportunities, and transportation to medical appointments or recreational outings.

Is my SIL eligible for NDIS funding?

Answer: SIL funding eligibility is contingent upon securing a suitable house and housemates. Once these steps are completed, we can assist you in submitting funding requests to the NDIS for approval.

What are the costs associated with SIL?

Answer: NDIS funding for SIL covers support needs based on the level of care required by each resident. However, certain expenses, such as house rent, hospitalisation-related fees, assistive technology, transport costs, day programs, and work-related expenses, are not covered by the NDIS and are the responsibility of the participant.

Is NDIS funding applicable to accommodation expenses?

Answer: Participants may qualify for NDIS assistance with housing costs, particularly for specialised housing needs due to disability. Additionally, rent-affordable properties are available under the National Rental Affordability Scheme (NRAS).

Does the NDIS cover expenses related to moving houses?

Answer: In certain cases, the NDIA may fund reasonable and necessary support related to home modifications, including relocation to accessible premises, if it proves to be a cost-effective solution for providing access.

Is electricity covered by the NDIS?

Answer: NDIS funding is allocated for reasonable and necessary support aimed at helping participants achieve their goals and lead active lives. However, funding cannot be utilised for essential needs such as food, rent, or utility bills like electricity.
