About me

Jan is a single carer with years of experience working with people with disabilities.

About my house

Jan’s home is a very well presented detached house with four bedrooms. There are patio doors in the living room that leads out to a flat lawned garden.

There is an upstairs and downstairs bathroom, a kitchen, dining room and a large living room with a big TV and comfortable sofas.

Who else lives here?

Jan lives here with two other ladies who also use SLSW services and her 12 year old adopted daughter.

She has four dogs:  Vinnie, Lilly, Maggie and Babs. All are incredibly social, calm and loving.

What we like to do

They all have a really good routine which includes going to the nearby market towns of Hatherleigh, Holsworthy and Tavistock, getting their hair done and going in to the shops.

There are lots of opportunities in the local area for day services and activities and Jan currently works closely with Madewell Farm to support the ladies who live with her.

Jan can support people who would like to do any activities available in the community including swimming, horse riding, attending day services or accessing the local community.

Our experience as a carer

Jan has been a Shared Lives Carer since 2005. She has supported lots of different people with different needs including Learning disabilities, Brain Injuries, Korsakoff Syndrome, Dementia and Mental health conditions.

The house is 20 minutes from the beach and 15 minutes from Dartmoor. Bus stops and shops can be found in the small neighboring towns and Jan is always happy to support you to access public transport, and the community to help you to be independent.
