Shared Lives

Description

The Shared Lives Team supports vulnerable adults over the age of 18. Shared Lives have carers who provide three different types of support:

  • Intermediate Support - where you live with the Shared Lives carer as a member of their family
  • Respite Support - where the Shared Lives carer can provide short breaks for either you or respite for your family members
  • Sessional Support - where the Shared Lives carer can provide support in their own home, in your own home or out in the community.

The service is available according to the needs of the individual and the shared lives carer's availability. The office is open Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm for enquiries for availability and for opportunities for becoming a Shared Lives Carer.
