Shared Lives long term support

Long Term support is when you live in the home of and share your life with a Shared Lives carer. This can be for a few months, or even years. We have lots of different carers - some of them have families that also live with them, and some carers live on their own. 

Who you live with, and how you live, are planned with you and other people you choose to be involved. This can be a family member, another carer, or an advocate, which is someone who helps to speak on your behalf.

Both carers and people receiving care are allowed to have a break from a long-term Shared Lives arrangement. This can be as a Shared Lives Short Break.

Mark Cowell and Karen Waring are the Shared Lives workers that mainly support and look after our Long Term Placements.  If you would like to know more about our long term support, Mark and Karen can be contacted by telephoning 0151 443 2060, between the hours of 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
