Supported Independent Living (SIL) is one type of help or supervision with daily tasks to help you live as independently as possible, while building your skills. 

SIL is the paid personal supports. It includes things like having a person to help with personal care tasks, or cooking meals. SIL can help build these skills too, so you can be more independent 

SIL happens in your home. You can get SIL if you live in a home with other people. You can also get SIL if you live on your own, but there might be other Personal Care Supports that suit you better. 

SIL funding doesn’t include things like rent or other day-to-day expenses like groceries.
