How can I access Minda Home & Living Support and explore housing options?
- Step 1: Let your Local Area Coordinator know you would like to access Home & Living Support (Supported Independent Living or SIL) at your next planning meeting.
- Step 2: If the NDIA determine Exploring Housing Options (EHO) is appropriate an Interim Plan will be created. EHO will be included.
- Step 3: Discuss your individual circumstances, needs and preferences with your Support Coordinator. You will then be asked to complete an assessment of your support needs by a Occupational Therapist, who will create an in-depth report.
- Step 4: The Support Coordinator will use this report and your preferences and needs to complete an EHO Assessment, which assesses suitable housing options including private rental, community housing and others. They will then send this to the NDIA for approval.
- Step 5: The NDIA will use the EHO Assessment to determine suitable housing options, housing ratios and support minutes required. It is important to note that the housing provider does not make these determinations.
- Step 6: Once the NDIA has approved SIL and determined the kind of housing and support required, a new plan is generated requesting a quote from the housing provider. The provider may ask for your email so the NDIA delegate can confirm the Home & Living Support.
