Shared Lives offers disabled adults and older adults with care needs the opportunity to live in an ordinary family home in Birmingham. All the support and care you need is provided by the Shared Lives carers you live with. You can also get help with your medication, finances and personal care.
Other Shared Lives services can be offered to you in your own home if that suits you better.
The Shared Lives carers are specially recruited, trained and approved. They have to be part of a Shared Lives scheme and all schemes are regulated by Care Quality Commission.
