David and Margaret Shared Lives Carer

“In our 30+years of being Shared Lives Carers, we have been supported by many teams. The current team in our opinion is exceptional in its support of carers and the people we support. We appreciate how professional and approachable they are, and we admire their commitment and involvement with the local community. In these uncertain times we really value the consistency and reliability provided by the team. It has been extremely beneficial to the people we support, and we hope to continue this partnership for many years to come.”

“This has been great for X.  The fact is without this option X would not access respite, due to his age and also his wife not wanting a residential environment. Shared Lives is a fantastic opportunity to provide home from home care. Additionally, we face challenges sourcing residential care for younger customers and even if a placement is offered, it no way fully accommodates their age and ability to have similar aged peers to engage with.”

Mary McElvaney former Chair of the Independent Panel

“Thank you once again for the opportunity over the past couple of years to be involved with Shared Lives and the Trust. You are an incredible group of people, by which I include all the staff team and Carers. The reports have always been of the highest quality and your oversight of the team has been impressive. Please pass my thanks along to all the stalwart members of the Panel from whom I have gained a great deal. I am sure that the Panel will go from strength to strength.”
