Could you open up your home and make a real difference to the life of someone living with dementia?
Kent County Council’s Shared Lives service provides short breaks, day care and longer term support in the host family’s own home which can help vulnerable adults avoid residential care homes.
People with dementia really benefit from still being able to live in a family home and the scheme allows them to develop new relationships and be part of the community. Hosts are paid and KCC needs more people to come forward and take on this rewarding role.
To find out more about becoming a Shared Lives host, or to find out more about how to use the service, visit www.kent.gov.uk/sharedlives or call 01233 652401.
