Shared Lives is the little known alternative to home care and care homes for disabled adults and older people. It is used by around 12,000 people in the UK and is available in nearly every area.
Shared Lives care may include:
- Long term accommodation and support
- Short breaks
- Daytime support
- Rehabilitative or intermediate support
- Kinship support where the carer acts as ‘extended family’ to someone living in their own home and where both the homes of the people using the service and the Shared Lives carers are available for contact
To find out more about how to become a Shared Lives carer and to speak about support that you would receive, as well as pay and rewards, come to our information day.
