Shared care for adults
Shared care offers short-term care to adults who are unable to live on their own without a full-time carer and the people who care for them. The care can vary in length from a few hours up to a maximum of two weeks at a time.
This type of care comes under North Yorkshire County Council's respite care service. For more information, see the respite care for adults page.
