Shared Lives is an innovative scheme that provides care and support for adults with additional needs and allows them to live as part of a ‘foster’ family within the community.
Respite sitting service
A sitting service is available for carers, to enable them to take a one off break, a regular short term break, or a longer term regular break. Help and advice is available from Dudley Carers Hub.
Holidays with care
There are a number of voluntary organisations and charitable trusts which provide holidays for people with specific illnesses or disabilities, or for older people who need extra support.
Enabling community support
We provide a range of support and assistance to older people aged 60 and over, in their own homes. For carers we can offer a visiting service while you are away on holiday. Visitenabling community support.
This is a free service, with no assessment required.
