|Shared Lives is when you live with another family in their home.
This used to be called 'Adult Placement'.
|You will have a chance to meet the family to see if you like each other.|
|You will have your own bedroom and share the other rooms in the house.|
|You will be helped by a member of the family who is called a Shared Lives carer.
Your carer will offer support and help with whatever you need. They can help with washing, dressing and going out.
|If you feel this might be a good for you then talk to your social worker or a family member.|
