Health and Care
Shared Lives is a form of support where a person who needs some support to live their life to the fullest comes to live with you in your home. Each day, you’ll support them towards living a happy and healthy life, and becoming as independent as possible.
Shared Lives can be offered to any adult with care and support needs and, in some cases, to young people from the age of 16.
Lots of different people use our Shared Lives service, from all different walks of life. We know work really well for people who: • have a learning or physical disability; • are experiencing a mental health problem; • might be moving from a different type of care, like foster care; • have come out of hospital and need a hand while they fully recover and regain their independence; or • already receive care but want to have a bit more choice about how it works.
But the ways we can support people to live a happy and fulfilled life can be helpful to anyone who needs some support; we don’t discriminate.
