Home Share Clare

Home Share Clare is a service developed by the Brothers of Charity, Co. Clare providing short breaks to adults and children with learning disabilities.

Care is provided for people in family homes and can really be seen as a home away from home. Individuals enjoy the opportunity of developing new relationships and being part of new communities whilst enjoying a short break.

Home-sharing is a two way process in that the families who provide the respite gain hugely from the experience of having a person with an intellectual disability stay in their home. Sustainable and unique relationships can develop that will last for many years to come.

Home Share families are assessed, trained and supported by Home Share Clare. Each child or adult is matched carefully to the caregivers and strong relationships can and have developed.
