Ruby Care understands the vital importance of taking part in community, social, and recreational activities. We encourage all of our participants to actively engage in their local community. Social interaction is essential to every aspect of our health. Research shows that having a strong network of support and strong community bonds improves both emotional and physical health.

Independent Living Option (ILO)
The NDIS is providing increased funding options to support people with a disability to live more inclusively – in a regular house, on a regular street, in a welcoming community.
Individual Living Options is a new, highly flexible support item funded through the NDIS, which ensures people are not limited to disability homes. The support model is highly individualised, and the participant is able to combine formal and informal supports. Ruby Care can assist those eligible to explore and design the package of supports that best suit your needs.
Key differences between ILO’s and SIL’s:
- ILO’s are designed around a client, one client at a time.
