Home Ownership and Individualised Living Option (ILO)
People who live in a combination of Home Ownership and ILO Supports will have gone through the ILO stage one process and will be funded with stage two ILO. In the ILO service proposal, they will have identified that the ILO will take place in their own home.
What this looks like: You will live in your own home in an ILO arrangement. This will typically mean that you share your home with other people who are not your family and do not have a disability (although any arrangement can be proposed to the NDIA for approval).
You will live in a home you or your family owns, which means you will live in a community that is well known to you. You will use the other supports in your plan to continue to access the community in ways that have meaning to you.
Its important for you and your support network/family to have frank discussions about the intended legacy use of the property, so that you can ensure you have a stable place to live into the future, if you don’t intend on moving around. It’s also important to work closely with your ILO provider to ensure that the vision for your arrangement is being upheld.
