Before selecting my Supported Independent Living (SIL) provider, it is vital that I ask a few key questions in order to make an informed decision and verify whether they can meet my unique requirements and offer enough support for me. I will present five key considerations before selecting my SIL supplier:

Questions to Ask Regarding Accommodations

One of the first and most likely things you’ll want to consider regarding accommodations is its house itself. As well as considering accessibility issues that may exist for you, be sure to consider its location, suitability for your needs and general state as you consider its purchase or rental agreement. Here are a few queries for further consideration: * Is public transportation easily available near here? * Is this house in decent condition?

* Does it contain the features necessary for accessibility? * Does the living area feel warm and welcoming? * Do you have access to a garden or other outdoor spaces?

Who Lives in Your Home with SDA Funds? Its Most people who move into shared housing with SDA funds do so for independence; therefore, it is essential that when making this decision you consider who your ideal housemates might be as well as the ambience of the residence.

Even if your NDIS plan allows, chances are high that you’ll share living quarters. Therefore, it is vital that you feel at ease sharing space with someone. Furthermore, be sure to plan how you would contact support personnel if an emergency situation aroses.

* What will your roommate(s) expect of you, and their needs for help?

Which Employees Will Be Available If Needed?

* Will there be transportation services to help get around in your new neighborhood?

How does the house look?

To ensure your prospective property meets all your needs and expectations for a home, always conduct a comprehensive evaluation of it. With more information available to you, it will become easier to judge whether or not it meets them.

  • Investigate the outdoor space: does there exist a backyard for you to use as a vegetable garden? * Will wheelchairs fit easily through hallways and staircases? * Does its general layout meet your requirements, such as how many bathrooms and living spaces exist?
  • How clean and well-kept does the home appear to be? * What must residents provide themselves, such as bedding, linens and bedroom furniture like beds, couches and mattresses? * Is a car available that suits your needs?
  • How is the area? Does the home offer access to local amenities and public transport? Who assists me? Your next inquiry should focus on who provides assistance at this home; ensure they can meet your needs anytime you require them.
  • What qualifications and training do the staff possess, such as First Aid and CPR certifications?
  • Do staffing levels meet your demands for care? For instance, will someone be present all day or just during certain hours?
  • Is the house’s support staff comprised of long-term employees familiar with each client’s needs and preferences?
