When people think about having to move out of their home, they usually envision themselves forced to live in an assisted living facility or a nursing home after their spouse passes away or because of their own health problems. However, there’s another option available to many seniors and disabled individuals called Supported Independent Living, or SIL in short.
What is Supported Independent Living?
Our supported independent living vacancie are the perfect option for seniors who need some help while still maintaining their independence and privacy. With a more comprehensive level of care than assisted living, our residents enjoy the freedom to do what they want, when they want. They can come and go as they please and have access to a variety of amenities including a fitness room, full kitchen, on-site laundry facilities, transportation services and much more.
The Benefits of Supported Independent Living
Sapphiresupport is a community-based organisation that has supported independent living for over 40 years. We provide housing, support and advocacy to people with disabilities in the ACT.
We offer 2 types of supported independent living:
– Supported Independent Housing (SIH)
– Supported Community Housing (SHC)
Supported Independent Housing is a scheme that provides long term accommodation and on site support services to people with disability in the community. This service assists individuals who are capable of managing their own lives, but need some assistance to do so. Supported Independent Housing provides this assistance by way of ongoing support from staff who live on site and help with tasks such as housekeeping, medication management and personal care as required.
How to Find Supported Independent Living Opportunities
If you’re someone who is looking for supported independent living opportunities, the best place to start is by filling out an application on the Sapphiresupport website.
