Supported Independent Living

Empowering independence through personalized assistance

Supported Independent Living (SIL) Services

At DAACCS, we are committed to empowering individuals with disabilities to live fulfilling lives through our comprehensive Supported Independent Living (SIL) services. DAACCS SIL services are designed to provide tailored support to individuals with disabilities, enabling them to live as independently as possible while still receiving the assistance they need to thrive.

What is Supported Independent Living (SIL)?

SIL is a shared living experience for people with disability who have SIL funding in their NDIS plan. SIL is for people with higher support needs, who need some level of help at home all the time, 7 days per week.

Supports are often 24/7, nurturing personal growth in a safe and supportive environment, fostering independence, autonomy, and community inclusion.

Our Approach to SIL Supports

At DAACCS, we understand that every individual has their own strengths, challenges, and aspirations. That’s why our SIL supports are highly individualised and person-centered. We work closely with each participant to develop a tailored support plan that reflects their preferences, goals, and needs.

Our SIL services may include:

  1. Daily Living Assistance: Our support workers assist with activities of daily living, such as personal care, meal preparation, household chores, and medication management; all based on the individual’s needs and preferences.
  2. Skill Development: We offer opportunities for skill development and capacity building to enhance independence and self-confidence. This may include implementing your Behavior Support Plan (if applicable), meal preparation, cooking, cleaning, and developing a routine.
  3. Emotional and Social Support: Our compassionate support workers provide support with supervision, personal safety and security, emotional support, companionship, and encouragement, fostering a sense of belonging and emotional well-being.

What’s not included in SIL but maybe funded in other areas of your NDIS plan:

  1. Community Participation: We encourage and facilitate community engagement and social inclusion by supporting individuals to participate in recreational activities, educational programs, employment opportunities, and community events.
  2. Coordination of Services: We assist individuals in accessing and coordinating other support services and resources, such as healthcare, therapy, advocacy, and specialist services, to ensure holistic support and continuity of care.

Why Choose Us?

Experienced and Compassionate Team: Our team of dedicated support workers are experienced, compassionate, and committed to empowering individuals with disabilities to live their best lives.
