Meeting and matching with your Shared Lives carer

For all Shared Lives arrangements, short breaks or long term support, there will be a proper matching process, so you get to meet the person you will be spending time with. 

The matching process may begin with a short visit, possibly for a meal at the carer’s house or somewhere in the community if you prefer. This will lead on to an overnight stay and then possibly a weekend or a week’s stay.

Shared Lives will only happen if you are happy with the carer you are being matched with.
