Friday Lunch: Shared Lives community support scheme
Fri 31 May, 1pm, Brander Kitchen
with Sue Mahony
Shared Lives care offers people with an alternative and highly flexible form of accommodation and /or care and support inside and outside the Shared Lives carer's home. Shared Lives arrangements are set up and supported by Shared Lives Schemes and the care and accommodation people receive is provided by ordinary individuals, couples or families in the local community. This alternative initiative and proven successful experiences enables individuals to choose a Shared Lives opportunity where they are able to share activities and life experiences with people who can support their needs.
Shared Lives enables a wide range of vulnerable people with a disability to live independent lives, have their health and well-being promoted and can , for some people, reduce the need for admission to hospital, or residential care.
