Adult Social Care - Shared Lives
Also known as: Shared Lives
Service Description: Shared Lives care offers people an alternative and highly flexible form of accommodation and/or care or support inside or outside the Shared Lives carer’s home. Shared Lives arrangements are set up and supported by the Shared Lives Scheme and the care and accommodation people receive is provided by ordinary individuals, couples or families in the local community. This alternative enables individuals taking up a Shared Lives opportunity and the Shared Lives carer/s to enjoy shared activities and life experiences.
Shared Lives enables a wide range of vulnerable people to live independent lives and have their health and well-being promoted.
