Shared Lives is a care and support service for adults who want to live independently in their community.
In Camden, Shared Lives is currently available for adults with learning disabilities.
The service involves matching you with an approved Shared Lives Carer and sharing their home and family life. Shared Lives Carers provide support by sharing their family life and community life.
Support you may receive includes:
- supporting you with hobbies and activities, a job or volunteering
- helping you to get to appointments and manage your medication
- helping you to find out what's available in your local community.
Shared Lives is available for short breaks or more long term arrangements.
