It is paid personal supports and is most commonly used in shared living arrangements. It includes things like having a person to assist with personal care tasks or cooking meals.
Supported Independent Living is for people with higher support needs who require some level of help at home all the time. This means you need a significant amount of assistance throughout the day, 7 days a week, including overnight supports.

ILO – Individualised Living Options
An Individualised Living Option (ILO) is an NDIS support that lets you choose the home you live in and set up supports in the way that best suits you. An ILO is a package of supports that can help you live where and who you want to live with. There are a lot of choices with ILO.
The ILO support package can be changed if your needs change and will be designed to provide the safety, stability, and flexibility you need. You can also include the support you get from friends and family, so everything works together how you want it to.
