Individualised Living Options (ILO)

Introducing Individualised Living Options (ILO) at Aruma. Find out more about our exploration and design services.

What are Individualised Living Options (ILO)?

There’s a new NDIS support in town – Individualised Living Options (ILO).

ILO is an NDIS support that helps people with a disability live in a home of their choice with support. You can choose how you want to live, where you live, and who you live with.

ILO doesn’t provide the house or dwelling itself, but rather a flexible package of supports in your home which are just right for you.

An apartment on your own in the city with drop-in support? A house in the suburbs with friends and shared support? There are so many options and the choice is yours!

Who can I live with?

With ILO you have complete control of who you live with. You can share a home with friends, housemates, live with a host family, or live on your own. Here are just some of the choices available:

  • Live alone
    • You can live alone in your own home with a package of supports such as drop-in support and on-call support.
  • Co-resident
    • A person providing support can live with you in your home. They may receive a payment or subsidised rent.
  • Host arrangement
    • You can live with a host family who provides support and a family environment. Some of the costs may be covered out of your NDIS Plan.
  • Living together
    • You can live with a friend, family member, or partner. If they’re also an NDIS participant, you could also share support.

No matter who you choose to live with, it’s the chance to form strong relationships with those around you.

Does Aruma provide ILO Services?

Yes! Aruma’s ILO services, work with you, your family, and friends to really understand what flexible home and living support is just right for you! Together we design your unique plan, using both paid and unpaid supports, to create your ideal home.

This is also called Exploration and Design. This is the first stage, and during this step, your Exploration and Design Co-ordinator works with you to:

  • understand and explore where and how you want to live
  • understand your strengths
  • find out what’s possible and recommend the best living options for you.

It’s the building block to really work out what you need and what you want. It will take around 3-months as it’s important to get it right. So, get the ball rolling today!

Stage 2, Implementation, which is carrying out your plan to make it a reality, is coming soon!
