Individualised Living Options

Where we live, who we live with and the supports to live the life we want are very important to everyone.

Individual Living Options (ILO) are focussed on working with you and your family to consider your needs and preferences – and design a flexible package of supports. Implementation often happens in stages and the package includes a primary support approach and supplementary supports. Once established the living arrangement is closely monitored and fine-tuned.

The following describe a variety of living arrangements under the ILO heading.

  • Co-Residency – support resides full time or part time in the participant’s home.
  • Living Alone – support is provided in the home of the participant in a variety of ways.
  • Living Together – participant lives with other people of their choice and receives support.

Individual living options are often a viable alternative to a group home.

Supported Independent Living

Supported Independent Living (SIL) is help and/or supervision of daily tasks to help you, as a client of Choices & Rights, to live as independently as possible, while building your skills. It is the paid personal supports that are most used in shared living arrangements.

SIL is one of many support options clients of Choices & Rights as NDIS participants can receive. When considering if SIL is the best option for you, the following are considered:

  • Your goals for your potential home and living arrangements, and the support required for daily tasks to assist you in living as independently as possible.
  • Whether alternative supports may be a better option.
  • Do you have significant support needs that require person-to-person supports, and what supports do you already receive.
  • Whether the NDIA decides the support meets the reasonable and necessary criteria for SIL funding.

Behaviour Support 

Positive behaviour support is a person-centred model of behaviour support that focuses on improving a person’s quality of life to reduce their behaviours of harm. While this model does contain strategies to assist to manage behaviours when they occur, the proactive strategies form the core of the behaviour support interventions to reduce the likelihood of behaviours occurring rather than focusing on management of behaviours.

As a Specialist Behaviour Support Provider, we will be taking referrals for the development of comprehensive behaviour support plans and offering training to Implementing Providers so they can utilise their behaviour support plans to the greatest extent possible. We will also be accepting referrals for Behaviour Support Assessments that can be carried out under the behaviour support line items in the NDIS Support Catalogue.

*List the behaviour support line items here, 11_022, 11_023, 11_024 with pricing*

Support Coordination

There are three levels of support coordination that can be included in your plan:

  1. Support connection – This support is to build your ability to connect with informal, community and funded supports enabling you to get the most out of your plan and achieve your goals.
  2. Support coordination – coordination of supports: This support will assist you to build the skills you need to understand, implement, and use your plan. A support coordinator will work with you to ensure a mix of supports are used to increase your capacity to maintain relationships, manage service delivery tasks, live more independently, and be included in your community.
  3. Specialist support coordination – This is a higher level of support coordination. It is for people whose situations are more complex and who need specialist support. A specialist Support Coordinator will assist you to manage challenges in your support environment and ensuring consistent delivery of service.

Depending on your individual goals, plan objectives and aspirations you may receive funding for these supports in your plan.

Capacity Building

The NDIS define personal capacity building as:

“Making sure people with disability and their families have the skills, resources and confidence they need to participate in the community or access the same kind of opportunities or services as other people”.

Capacity Building is supporting people and families to exercise their own choice and control, develop new forms of support and skill that build independence and a happy, contented life.  Capacity building is not a goal.  It is an approach that empowers individuals to access and create a life that is meaningful to them now and into the future.

At Choices & Rights we consider capacity building a demonstration of respect for people’s individual right to live their own life.
