Supported independent living (SIL)

Consistent supervision and skill building in a shared Hunter Care Group-owned home.

SIL involves shared supports with other housemates. A roster of care is developed in the beginning to identify the supports each participant needs throughout the week.

A SIL-trained team offering 24/7 support

We offer NDIS-funded supported independent living for people who need full-time support while living in a shared property. Our aim is to help participants live as independently as possible in an environment where they can make friends, have fun, and feel completely at home.

All of our supported independent living workers are inducted by us and receive ongoing training. They’re never subcontracted. We know that routine and consistency are important to reduce anxiety and help build relationships, so our SIL staff work the same day and time every week.

What does supported independent living include?

  • Help with everyday tasks, such as preparing and cooking meals, and personal care, such as showering and getting dressed
  • Support with chores such as cleaning and tidying
  • Going shopping to buy groceries and other items
  • Help with learning healthy eating habits and doing exercise
  • Enabling participation in social activities outside of the home
  • Social activities in our homes, including BBQs, where our participants and staff can relax together
  • Basic medical care, including wound care, distributing medication, medical assistance, taking you to medical appointments
