Adult Social Services: Shared Lives Scheme - WNC
How to contact this service
Northamptonshire Shared Lives is a scheme that provides adults with a range of needs with full-time and personalised support within the homes of professional carers.
Carers provide comfortable family homes for younger adults, adults with a learning disability and older people. The idea is to give as much independence as possible to individuals while having a safe and secure home environment within the community.
A careful matching process ensures individuals are paired with suitable carers who will treat them as family members, meet their needs and provide the right support.
Customers looking for a permanent home can use Shared Lives as an alternative to home care or care homes. This gives the adult opportunities to create links and develop their identity in relation to the family and the wider community.
Short-term support and respite care
West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) appreciate that carers may need time to themselves. This is why Shared Lives offers a dedicated short-term and respite service for carers to take time away while providing their loved one with a safe and friendly home environment.
It involves temporarily relocating the individual into a Shared Lives carer's home, where they will receive the right care and support they need from a trained carer.
