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.
