Milton Keynes Short Breaks and Shared Lives (Adults)

We provide opportunities for adults who need additional support to access person centred care from either Shared Lives or Short Breaks services.

 

Short Breaks

The Short Breaks Service is registered with The Care Quality Commission (CQC)  and is available to adults with learning disabilities who have the highest and most complex needs (see our Complex Services Model) providing day support, weekend and overnight stays which also offer a break (respite) for carers. The staff work closely with health and social care professionals, each person using the service will have a detailed individual support plan to meet their physical and emotional needs. 

Shared Lives

The scheme is registered with The Care Quality Commission (CQC) and matches adults who have care and support needs with an approved Shared Lives Carer who provides support in their own home. 

 

Both services are accessed following an assessment of eligibility completed by the Community Team for Adult with Learning Disabilities
