What is Shared Lives? - Camden Shared Lives

What is Shared Lives?

Shared Lives is a way that you can move in with somebody who can support you to learn new skills and do things you both enjoy.

The person you move in with is trained and is called a Shared Lives carer. You can stay with your Shared Lives carer for a long time or just for a short stay. You can choose what you do, and how much time you spend with them.

Shared Lives carers are not there to do everything for you. They want you to be as independent as possible. If you find something difficult they can work with you until you feel happy to do it on your own.
