Supported Independent Living

Supported Independent living

Supported independent living is one type of support to help you live in your home or shared living environment. It includes help or supervision with daily tasks, like personal care or cooking meals. It helps you live as independently as possible, while building your skills.

Supported independent living is for people with higher support needs, who need some level of help at home all the time. Supported independent living is best suited to people with a disability who have higher support needs.

Good Samaritan Care Services have the capacity to provide you the support, throughout the day, 7 days a week. This includes overnight support. Good Samaritan Care Services is passionate about providing long term supported disability accommodation in homes that have been specially built or modified to enable independent living in a safe home environment. They are designed to support residents as they develop their independence and engage in a variety of activities and programs through our whole-of-life approach to accommodation supports.

Good Samaritan Care Services is committed to assist people to live life their way. Our priority is that each resident feels included, safe and happy so they can enjoy the best lifestyle.
