Shared Lives Home from Hospital

What carers do

Being a Shared Lives Carer is really flexible. You can support up to three people, working hours that suit you, and that fit around your family life.

Home from Hospital Shared Lives Carers:

  • help people to regain daily living skills and confidence
  • help people to be as independent as possible after a stay in hospital
  • help people to avoid readmission to hospital
  • prevent people from having to move into residential home until they need to

Shared Lives Carers do not need qualifications but should have a wide range of skills and life experience. Previous caring experience is not needed; we will train you.  

As a Shared Lives Carer, you would support people leaving hospital to regain daily living skills, fitness, and confidence to enable them to return to their own home. For example, depending on the person's needs, you might assist them to regain the following skills:

  • cooking
  • washing-up
  • cleaning
  • taking medicines
  • getting in and out of bed
  • dressing
  • washing
  • doing your shopping; or
  • getting out and about to see family and friends

Shared Lives carers come from diverse backgrounds. They may be single, or a couple, with or without children living at home. They can be any age over 18 years.
