Adult Placement Service - Shared Lives

The Adult Placement Service provides care, support and accommodation for people who need help due to age or disability. Specially recruited carers provide this service within their own home. Workers attached to the Adult Placement Service arrange the placements and provide back-up support and guidance.

What are the different types of Adult Placement?

Short Breaks - These are for a specified period of time, ranging from an overnight stay, to a longer period of time with Carers.
Sessional Breaks - This is a more flexible arrangement either in the daytime or the evening, to do a specific activity with the support of a Carer. It does not include overnight stays.
Longer Term Care - This is where the person moves in on a longer-term basis and lives as a member of the Carer's family.
Daytime Short Break Service - This is where the person spends time with the Carer on a regular basis on one or more days in the week.

If you would like further information about the Adult Placement Service, please contact the Adult Placement Officer.
