The Shared Lives Scheme means that you can live in the family home of a registered Shared Lives Carer who has been matched with you so that they are able to meet your needs. The Scheme is inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
A Shared Lives Carer supports you to do daily tasks such as:
- Visits to the doctor and dentist
- Doing housework such as cleaning your room or washing your laundry
- Carrying out personal care if you need it.
Islington Learning Disability Partnership can work with you to find out if a Shared Lives Scheme would give you the support you need.
Most Shared Lives Carers are in Islington or close by, but some are further away.
If you move into a Shared Lives Scheme you will share a home with other people and become part of their family. You will get most of the day to day support you need from the Carer and their family.
