Looking for supported independent living vacancies in the Sunshine Coast?

Here are some factors you may need to consider.

Supported independent living (SIL) can help you or the person under your care live as independently as possible in a home of your own or in an accommodation that you share with others living with similar disabilities.

Individuals with disabilities are given support and help with daily tasks, like housework, personal care, and the preparation of meals. This type of service is usually given to individuals who require more hands-on support.

To get the most value out of these services, you or the person under your care should look out for supported independent living services in the Sunshine Coast that are best suited for your unique requirements.

What should I consider when looking for a SIL vacancy?

These are a few things you may want to look at when choosing a supported independent living vacancy in the Sunshine Coast:

    What are my housemates like?

    In most cases, you or the person under your care may have to share accommodation with others; sharing lodging with the ideal housemate can make your stay more comfortable. 

    When looking for a vacancy, consider asking the support provider about the individuals you’ll be living with, if you will be getting any personal time, and if your housemates will participate in household activities with you.

    What’s the accommodation like?

    When looking for a vacancy, investigating the home you’ll be living in is vital. You or the person under your care will want to live in a place that is comfortable for you, accessible, and meets your needs.

    Check if the home is:

    • Designed to have built-in support, like ramps for wheelchairs.
    • Accessible to a vehicle.
    • Available with furniture and other necessities already included.
    • Clean and well maintained.

    Who will be helping me?

    Before you settle into a supported independent living facility, you’ll want to make sure that the right support workers will be available to you. Ask the support service provider about the following:

    • Do the support workers have training in CPR and first aid?
    • Will they be at the home at all times or during certain hours of the day?
    • Are they familiar with the specific needs of the individuals under their care?
