City of Edinburgh Council Shared Lives
You can stay with a carer for a weekend or a few days holiday or for a longer time.
All our carers are assessed and supported by our team and we provide placements for short breaks and longer term care. The Shared Lives service provides an opportunity for people to stay with carers in a family environment as part of their local community. We have service users that visit carers for the occasional weekend, weeks and others that have lived with carers for many years!
You will be able to develop new skills and meet new people, get support to become more independent.
We will plan for your needs, find the best carer for you to support you and your carer.
