Did you know it's #SharedLivesWeek? Well, you do now!

In these unusual and testing times, the SL staff team here at the MioCare Group decided to procure a little gift to those brilliant people in the Shared Lives Oldham family.

People like Mahmood and Jabeen, Susan and Tara, Sandra and Malcolm and lots more!

Over to SL manager, Katie...

"We contacted Chrissy's cupcakes who we'd seen had made some amazing bespoke cakes for key workers. With her help, we designed some unique cupcakes of our own!

We're grateful to Chrissy who readied 30 boxes - 120 cupcakes in total! The SL staff team then went about delivering the boxes to all our long term matches. Offering our support and catching up with everyone in the process.

Now, we like to think that the SL family are ALWAYS pleased to see us. But there were big smiles when they saw we'd put cupcakes on the doorstep.

From us all in the staff team, we want to wish everyone involved in the scheme a happy #SharedLivesWeek! And we want to say a massive thank you for your continued efforts. You're an amazing community caring so much for each other.

Keep it up!"


Could you be a long-term Shared Lives carer in your hometown of Oldham? Are you over 18 years of age and able to work with vulnerable people? Do you have a spare room in your home? If so, we want to hear from you! We are seeking people with a strong value base and who are keen to make a big difference to someone in their community.

An allowance is given to carers to help them offer this support. Carers also receive paid respite and are eligible for a discount scheme. The Shared Lives team are on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the year to support this network of incredibly special people.
