Aberdeenshire Council Shared Lives Scheme
Long term placements enable people to live their lives in the community sharing the home of the Shared Lives Carer, being included as part of the family. Occasional and flexible short breaks enable the individual an enjoyable and needs led break whilst allowing their carers/family a break. This flexibility enables family carers to have a planned break while their loved one stays with a known, trusted and trained Shared Lives carer so they are having their own tailor made holiday too. Daytime support gives users of the service a chance to plan their day with the Shared Lives Carer so that their day makes a difference.
Activities within the Scheme may include, walking, going for a picnic, support to attend clubs and shows, planning and shopping for meals, cooking healthy meals, swimming, art sessions, days out to Dundee and more! Opportunities to take part in activities and outings are offered, or simply relax in an atmosphere that is calm and supportive. Some users of this service like to continue with their day activities that they currently enjoy.
The Scheme is registered with the Care Inspectorate, and is currently rated very good / excellent.
