Individualised Living Options (ILO) is a form of support that assists people living with disability to remain in their chosen home environment in a way that best suits their needs.
ILO support is exactly as the name suggests, individualised assistance that can include a combination of informal and formal supports that meets the participant’s needs. This may include a mixture of supports from family and friends and formal scheduled supports with CatholicCare. Supports may include:
- Help to make decisions like where you want to live and supports you need to make that happen and other day-to-day decisions
- Personal care
- Assistance to set up and manage your own home
- Help to build your independence and to build and maintain connection with others
- Support to manage your emotions or behaviour
- Unpaid informal supports like neighbours or carers who help you on a regular basis
- Support from CatholicCare who you call to help you when you need it (on-call)
- Training for the people who support you … and more.
There is further information about ILO supports on the NDIS site here.
