However, it is their shared love for food that truly strengthens their bond. Both Carol and Annalise love exploring new dishes when abroad. Carol and Annalise also find much joy in cooking together at home.

Their journey hasn’t been without its challenges. Before Shared Lives Annalise found maintaining a healthy and secure lifestyle tricky. However, with Carol’s support and encouragement, she has improved massively.
