SILS – Independent Living

Michelle provides comprehensive Supported Independent Living assessments. She will work with other clinicians to ensure integrated practice recommendations for the participant.

The assessment typically involves:

  • two face to face meetings with the participant
  • an interview with a close family member
  • and an interview with a carer or close support person
  • review of previous reports/individual plans

We also come to your home/work or education setting to see how you are going in your everyday life in your community.

The assessment report outlines areas of need, notes any risks and recommendations for support options. The report aligns with the participants goals and suggestions are made for the participant to be able to live as independently as possible.
