Supporting another person comes with oodles of responsibility and we all need a break from time to time, to recharge our batteries and remind ourselves how rewarding our job really is.
Whether it’s a seaside stroll, some retail therapy, or just catching up on the soaps; a change of scenery can do the world of good for carers and the person being supported too.
PSS Shared Lives carers are amazing, yet ordinary people who open up their homes and their hearts to people with learning and physical disabilities, mental health needs and/or other complex needs.
For full-time carers, like you, they can provide short breaks with the person you care for, spending their days how they choose to; in the park, or the café, or the bingo hall or at home. The main thing is, they’re getting out and about, making new friends and gaining some confidence, whilst you get some well-deserved me time!
We’d like to invite you for a cuppa and a chat with Sarah from our Shared Lives team, to find out if Shared Lives is a good option for you.
Drop in any time on Thursday 4th April, 11am- 3pm at Town Hall, Parliament Square, Ramsey, IM8 1RT
See you there!
