We know it’s a clichéd thing to say, but when you’re a Shared Lives carer, no two days of work are ever the same.


Here’s a list of some of the great things about being a Shared Lives carer:


  • You can change someone’s life for the better

  • Work from home – or the park, or the café, or the swimming pool,  or the bingo hall…

  • Work flexible hours

  • Earn a living by doing something wonderful for someone else

  • Learn things about yourself you never knew possible

  • Train up in brand new skills

  • Get support from your own dedicated team of people who are there to help you be the best you can be

  • Extend your family

  • Stop someone from being lonely

  • Do something truly amazing with your life

The perks of being a carer

But don't just take if from us....


There is something great about putting a smile on Tony's face. I know I've had a part in that. 


I might get paid but this is not like a job. I get to spend my days with a good friend, doing things we enjoy - together.


I love the support I get from PSS, they are always there for me when I need them. You can't beat that team spirit when you're self-employed.
