What is SIL?

Supported Independent Living Brisbane (SIL) is a service and funding solution by the NDIS.

It provides, in many cases, 24/7 support and care to those who are of old age or are currently living with illness or physical disabilities.

The primary goal of SIL is to allow you to live as independently as possible and to have a better quality of life in general.

It can extend to individuals living in a group owned and managed by the SIL provider as well as your current place of residence -- be it your own home, a family home, or even in Specialist Disability Accommodations Brisbane (SDAs).

Beacon Support: Your SIL solution

If you are someone who is of old age, or suffering from a medical condition or a physical disability and need assistance, supervision or management of your daily tasks, Beacon Support can provide SIL services to you.

From tending to you within your home as well as with tasks outside including tasks such as shopping, attending therapy sessions, other events and more, Beacon Support qualified to assist you.

Finding a home care service and support provider might take some effort, but finding one you can trust and truly count on is even more challenging.

There are times when an SIL provider might not be the best match for a client's particular situation or circumstances.

If you are unsatisfied with your current provider and shopping around for a new one, let us know.

We can discuss the support solutions that work best to fit your needs.

Deafblindness In Home Care

Our Main Goal

Beacon Support's primary goal as an SIL provider is to ensure each client’s physical safety, care, and security to be able to make individual life choices via the following:

- Develop, improve and expand independent daily living skills

- Foster potential growth and progress by offering avenues to develop existing capabilities

- Enhance a client's sense of self within the community

- Provide NDIS related assistance

Beacon Support DOES NOT provide clients with a separate residence or home known as a Specialist Disability Accommodation Brisbane (SDA).

We will go to where you already are and work with you in the comfort of your existing home/residence.

At Beacon Support, we do not have home care properties or SDAs to offer and are not looking to fill vacancies with home care clients.

We can, however, deliver SIL services to clients situated in their own homes, SDA arrangements, and even in group homes.

Beacon Support can also take over existing SIL provider accounts, especially for those who are operating their own SDAs.

What Our SIL Carers Do

At Beacon, we don't just deliver physical home care needs but also lifestyle support to our clients.

We provide friendship and encourage independence as much as possible within the limits of their conditions.

We assist with daily chores, including cooking and tidying up as well as doing the shopping and more.

We also offer the following:

  • Mobility support
  • Nutrition support and feeding assistance
  • Communication devices and support
  • Administering medication
  • Bowel and bladder function support
  • Emotional support to you and your loved ones
  • Coordination with other services such as occupational therapy, speech therapy, and physiotherapy
  • Personal care support as required
  • 24-hour assistance if needed.
  • Assisted Holidays for People with Disabilities

These are just some of the services included for those who need our support, guidance, and encouragement the most.

To our SDA clients, on the other hand, we can manage the staff, screen new support workers before employment, and handle all necessary SIL tasks.

Funding Your SIL

Once approved, your funding will be given to your area's SIL Support Coordinator, who will then facilitate finding and matching health and service providers like Beacon Support for you.

Since your SIL funding can be used wherever you are currently living, there is no need to move to a hospital or a Special Disability Accommodation Brisbane.

We receive several requests from these coordinators for individuals like you that need SIL services.
