Shared Lives

Bournemouth Shared Lives matches vulnerable adults with carers who can care for you in their family home, either for a few hours each week or permanently

Who is Shared Lives for?

If you are aged 18 and over and you:

  • have a learning disability
  • have mental health problems
  • have a physical disability
  • are an older person who needs a home and support

About Shared Lives carers

We carefully match people using the service with a Shared Lives carer and provide family placements tailored to meet your specific needs. Carers are continually monitored and are given ongoing support and training.  

You'll be able to meet the Shared Lives carer and spend time with them before you move in or have day support.
