The report points out "Carers we contacted spoke with affection and respect about the people they supported."

The Shared Lives team is also looking for residents to become Shared Lives carers. All types of people can become Shared Lives carers, with the role being flexible and personalised to suit the carer. Carers can offer long-term care, short-term care or even day services, which can take place during the day, during the evening or at weekends.
