Do you want to choose the home you live in, who you live with and what supports you need to live a good life? With individualised living options (ILO), you can.
ILO is a NDIS support model that helps you choose where you live and how you want to live, while still getting the support you need. Scope can help you get started with ILO, working with you and your support network to explore your options and work out what’s best for your needs and preferences.
With ILO, your living arrangements can change over time as your needs evolve. The goal is to build a sustainable plan with a strong focus on getting family and friends on board as part of your support crew.
Choose how you want to live!
Your ILO will be tailored to your needs. You can explore options that appeal to you and then design your needs and wants.
Your individualised living option could include:
- Support to make decisions like where you want to live and supports you need to make that happen
- Personal care
- Support to set up and manage your own home
- Support to build and maintain connection with others
- Support with making day to day decisions
- Support to manage your emotions or behaviour
- Unpaid informal supports like neighbours or carers who help you on a regular basis
- People who you call to help you when you need it (on-call)
- Training for the people who support you
How Scope can help plan your ILO supports
Scope’s expert team can help with the first stage of your ILO journey — which is all about understanding your wants and needs and putting plans in place to make it happen.
One of our experienced ILO Coordinators will work closely with you, your family, and friends to design a support plan that’s right for you. Your plan will likely include both formal and informal supports, with details on everything you need to live independently.
Along the way, you’ll be given a variety of options and we’ll help you consider each one and weigh up any potential risks. Our goal is to help you make an informed decision on your final plan.
Once you’re happy with your plan, we’ll prepare a report and service proposal for submission to the NDIS.
Once approved we are good to start to deliver your supports in line with you ILO design. Please note we can do stage 1 Exploration and design and Stage 2 – Supports separately.
You may come to us for help with just planning your ILO or with your proposal and have us deliver the supports.
