Shared Lives Carer (TWC000001839)
My Options - Activity, Well-being & Care
Can you make a positive difference to someone’s life? Do you have good communication and listening skills and feel passionate about supporting other people to live a more independent and fulfilling life? My Options - Activity Wellbeing and Care Services is part of Telford & Wrekin Council and provides a wide range of person-centred support to vulnerable people of all ages and abilities. We currently provide a wide range of services including; Community Activity and Wellbeing, services, Residential options, Community support for those people living in their own or shared accommodation. Our services also include a very successful Shared Lives Scheme and The Skills and Enterprise hub, where people can develop their skills and confidence as part of their stepping stone to work. Shared Lives carers open their home, family and community life to an adult (anyone over 16 years) who needs care or support to help them live well. Local schemes individually match trained and approved Shared Lives carers with people who need their support. This approach is now one of the fastest growing forms of social care in the UK. In Telford and Wrekin, Shared Lives carers allow adults with learning disabilities, mental health support needs and dementia related conditions to continue to live in the community. For many of these people this allows them to lead a more independent life. The Shared Lives scheme in Telford and Wrekin is run by the My Options team. Councillor Arnold England, cabinet member for Adult Social Care, said: “We’re really proud of the work that our Shared Lives carers do in Telford and Wrekin and we’re pleased that this is being recognised nationally for the success that it is. “Shared Lives offers people the chance to remain in the community and to enjoy family life.” The foundation of the success of Shared Lives is the “Match”. This process – unique to Shared Lives – involves meeting up, perhaps for a cup of tea or a meal and getting to know each other before agreeing to move in to Shared Lives. This way, people can discover if they share common interests or hobbies, meaning they have a basis for a successful partnership. John, one of the people who lives in a Shared Lives placement in Telford and Wrekin, loves animals. The first time he met Mitch, his Shared Lives carer, he had spotted a frog in a hole in the road and John asked Mitch if he could get it out. Without question, Mitch jumped into the hole and rescued the frog. John said: “I knew then that I would be happy to live with Mitch.” He now looks after the fish in the tank they have at the house, as well as a parrot and two chickens.
