Could you become a Worcestershire Shared Lives Provider?

Would you like to work from home? Maybe looking for a career change?

If you have a spare room, and a passion for enabling people to live a fulfilling life, develop new skills and enjoy the community they live in, Shared Lives may be for you.

Previous care experience is preferred but not essential as you will be given all the training and support you need for this rewarding role. You will need to bring your life experience, a caring nature, enthusiasm, enjoy a challenge and have the desire to make a difference.     

Shared Lives Providers are self-employed and receive a fee, this is dependent on the level of care and support the person you are supporting needs. We support people with learning disabilities, people with mental health needs, young adults with support needs and people with an acquired brain injury.

There are many different levels of need and as the Shared Lives Scheme is a “matched” service – you make the decision about who you can offer support to in your home.

Long Term Care – The person lives with you and your family.

A Provider would receive a fee between £275 - £500 per week plus payment towards room costs, food and utilities which is usually between £130 - £140 per week. A total payment of between £405 and £640 per week.

Short Term / Respite Care - Weekends, overnight stays, or a holiday break for another Provider.

A Provider would receive £72.20 per night or £505.40 per week

A Shared Lives Provider can be the stepping stone needed to enable a person to become more independent in the wider community by learning to make decisions, cook for themselves and run a home, stay or get healthy or perhaps they may become a long term addition to your family.
