Types of placement

There are different types of placement and opportunities for Shared Lives carers this will depend on the needs of the individual. You're welcome to call us for a chat to find out more about the role of a Shared Lives carer and the type of placement that would be most suitable for you.

What different types of placement are there?

  • Long term placements - a person will come to live in your home on a long-term basis. You will provide a spare bedroom so the person looked after can have their own room and private space.
  • Short term breaks - this can be anything from one night to a few weeks at a time. It may be a 'one-off' or planned on a regular basis
