If you are a disabled person aged 16 and over or an older adult with care needs the Shared Lives scheme could be for you.
You will have your own bedroom and share the rest of the house. There will not be more than three people getting support at any one time.
Your Shared Lives carer can help you with lots of things like washing and dressing, and helping you with money and medication.
You can do the things you usually do like going shopping, going for a meal, having friends round, or keeping a pet.
Matching you up with a carer
We will talk to you to find out the things that are important to you. Then we will try to find a carer to suit you.
We will arrange for you to spend some time with your carer before you move in or choose to have support there. All the carers are checked, trained and supervised.
