Independent SIL vs. SIL Group Homes in Darwin: Which is Right for You?

In the Northern Territory, individuals exploring Supported Independent Living (SIL) options often find themselves at a crossroads, contemplating the choice between a private home and a group home. At Amazing Grace Community Services, we understand the importance of making the right decision and aim to provide insights into the unique aspects of both settings. We support the choices of our participants to empower you, your family and your carers in making the best decision for all involved.

Supported Independent Living Darwin

Supported Independent Living in Darwin private homes offers a personalised and intimate living experience. Individuals can access 24-hour in-home care while enjoying the comfort and familiarity of your private space. This choice is suitable for those looking to live independently, whether on your own or with other NDIS participants (subject to your NDIS funding).

Fostering Independence and Skill Building

Pros of SIL in private homes include the opportunity for individuals to receive help or supervision with daily tasks, fostering independence and skill-building. However, it's important to consider that this option is tailored for individuals with higher support needs requiring consistent assistance at home, and often overnight.

Shared SIL NDIS Darwin

SIL NDIS in Darwin shared private homes provides the flexibility to choose living arrangements, including deciding with whom to share support. Whether living with familiar NDIS participants or forming new connections, the choice is yours. Our SIL houses offer various ratios, including 1:1, 2:1, 1:2, or 1:3, ensuring personalised care aligned with individual needs.

Group Homes

While private homes offer autonomy, group homes provide a communal living experience. Group homes can foster a sense of community, allowing individuals to share their support network with fellow participants. However, it's a good idea to note that the dynamics of shared living may vary, and individuals should consider their preferences and comfort levels.

Individual Living Options - ILO NDIS

Ultimately, choosing between living alone in a private home and sharing a home with other people with a disability in a group home is a personal decision influenced by individual needs and preferences (and is also determined by your level of NDIS funding). Through experience and understanding, we know the pros and potential pitfalls of both options and support you in making informed choices when it comes to your SIL NDIS options. If you have questions or need assistance navigating the NDIS, feel free to reach out to us for personalised support and guidance.
