Long-term support - Shared Lives

Shared Lives can be an alternative to home care or care homes and provides a much more person-centred approach.

This gives supported people the opportunity to create relationships and develop their identity in relation to the family and the wider community. 

Shared Lives carers provide long-term encouragement, guidance and support with: 

  • personal care (washing, dressing etc)
  • administering medication if required
  • attending medical and social appointments
  • making friends
  • cooking meals
  • spending time together
  • going on holiday together
  • day to day financial support
