|Opening hours||Office opening hours are Monday to Friday 9 am - 5 pm.
Short-Break Arrangements are provided in 24 hour blocks, from 1 - 28 nights. Day-support Arrangements are provided in 4 hour sessions.
|Accessibility details||As Shared Lives is delivered from within a Carer's own home, there may be occasions when there are restricted or limited accessibility.|
Short-Breaks (also known as Respite): A person is carefully matched to come to stay with our Shared Lives Carers from one night up to a few weeks at a time, giving family members a planned break from their caring role or conversely at times of crisis intervention and prevention.
This is an increasing and far more personalised alternative to traditional residential respite care and many people use their Personal Budget/Direct Payment to fund this type of Arrangement.
