Shared Lives is a regulated form of social care delivered by Shared Lives carers who are approved by a registered Shared Lives scheme. Shared Lives enables people to live life to the full in their community, without having to live alone or in a care home. Individuals who need support are matched with compatible Shared Lives carers and families, who support and include an adult in their family and community life. In many cases that person moves in, to become a permanent part of a supportive household, although Shared Lives is also used as day support and as regular short breaks for unpaid family carers.
