ABOUT SHARED LIVES SERVICE
The service provides long term placements; short breaks, respite care, day care and emergency care, for adults with a range of needs, within carers own homes. Carers are recruited, assessed and supported to carry out this provision of care. People have the opportunity to live in an ordinary home as part of the carer's family. Respite care is provided to people living with their own family and also to people living within a shared lives placement. The service operates throughout Lancashire.
