Supported independent living (SIL) providers are professionals committed to supporting people with disabilities to live as independently as possible. At EaseCare, we understand that being able to live independently is important and that it is something that will take some time to adjust to. For this reason, EaseCare is happy to support you so you can live independently in the comfort of your home or shared accommodation.

Our SIL services are recommended for people with a disability who need extra support in living their daily lives. This means people who require care 24/7. At EaseCare, we will also provide you with tailored support to help improve your independent living skills.

With EaseCare supported independent living services in Melbourne, you can:

  • Receive support so you can live on your own, and
  • Receive support so you can develop skills to live on your own

You can choose to receive your SIL service:

  • Overnight
  • Everyday (24/7)
  • Or however you need it

    • Building a routine
  • Behaviour support plans

Do I Have to Live on My Own?

The answer is – only if you want to.

You can receive SIL support if you live in shared housing, too.

  • If you want to live with other NDIS participants and share your SIL support with them, that can be arranged.
  • If you want to live in shared housing specially designed for people with disabilities, you can still receive SIL support.
  • If you want to live on your own, you can also receive SIL support.

Can SIL Be Combined with other NDIS support?

Expenses unrelated to your disability, such as rent and groceries, are not included in NDIS supported independent living funding.

There are many types of NDIS support – so depending on your needs, you may be more suitable to receive other types of support. Your needs and wants are important to us, so let’s discuss how we can best support you.
