SIL is not just about living independently; it's about having the right support to live life on your own terms.

Exploring the Concept of Supported Independent Living

Supported Independent Living, commonly referred to as SIL, is a service designed for individuals with disabilities who need ongoing support to live independently in their own homes. This support can range from assistance with daily tasks to complex care needs.
