Our experience as carers

I have more than 30 years experience providing care and support, supporting people with varying needs.

I have been a Shared Lives carer for seven years, supporting emergency placements, short term and respite and have supported three women who lived with us for many years.  They have now moved on.


Who I can support

We can provide a supportive home environment for somebody who would like to live with us, or we can provide short breaks or regular respite as a fun supportive holiday.  We can also provide a place to stay after hospital to get you ready to go back home.

I can support people with a learning disability, autism, older people, people with sight loss or dementia.  Our home can also be suitable for people who have difficulty with their mobility.
