The support is provided to each person living in the shared arrangement in accordance with their needs. SIL does not include rent, board and lodging or other day to day usual living expenses such as food and recreation or capital costs associated with a participant's accommodation . 

Host Family Support

A "host" family provides support as needed or on a regular scheduled basis. 

This care may be provided in the home of the host family, or in the service user's own home.

This support is based on volunteer assistance with expenses reimbursed. 

Cottage Respite

High quality support for frail, older people (65 years and over or 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) to maximise their independence at home and in the community for as long as they choose or are able to do so.
