Individualised Living Options

Individualised Living Options (ILO), an NDIS funded service, is one of the three home and living support services we provide at Karakan. ILO is a flexible and personalised service that is all about helping you live your life, your way. Our dedicated team will empower you to choose where you live, who you live with, and how you are supported. This could be living alone, with others, or in a host family arrangement. The goal of ILO is to make you feel at home and help you become more independent.

The three types of home and living support services include Supported Independent Living(SIL), Individualised Living Options(ILO) and Short-Term Accommodation(STA).

These services are designed to promote independence, enhance your quality of life, and support your mental health recovery.

ILO can include help with personal care, learning new skills, or doing things around the house like cooking, cleaning, or laundry. But it is not just about practical help. It is a unique approach that is all about putting you at the centre of your living arrangement. And remember, your family and friends can also be there to support you alongside the paid supports.

At Karakan, we understand the importance of community. That is why our ILO service also focuses on helping you build relationships and connections in your community.

The best part about ILO is that you are in charge. You get to decide how your supports are set up, and we can assist if you need it. This means you get to live your life the way you want, with the support you need.

Individualised Living Options (ILO) could be a good fit for you if you are an NDIS customer with mental health needs and psychosocial disabilities and you meet the following criteria:

1. You need to be 18 years or older. If you are 17 and thinking about where you want to live in the future, you can also consider ILO.

2. You need support at home for at least 6 hours each day.

Your friends and family can help you make decisions and set up your ILO. And at Karakan, we are always here to help.

If you have any questions or need more info, feel free to reach out to us at Karakan.
