What is Shared Lives?
Shared Lives is an alternative approach to traditional residential respite and day services. It offers care and support for adults and carers. Trained Shared Lives carers provide short breaks and day support in their own homes, helping people achieve independent and fulfilling lives.
A Shared Lives carer may provide various types of care to adults, including for example: People with physical or sensory impairments; adults with learning disabilities; older people – perhaps with a level of dementia; and people experiencing mental ill health.
Shared Lives also looks to offer support for people transitioning from children’s to adult services; and to cover in emergencies, if a carer is ill; in hospital; or for other domestic crises.
