Description

This is a refreshing book about community care. It contains an immense wealth of practical detail about the fundamentals of costs, operational policy, day-to-day life in a small home, fostering community links. I would thoroughly recommend the book to any of you if you are weary of budgets and care management, as a way of re-stimulating enthusiasm for community care, and revitalizing imagination.'

- British Journal of Social Work

The conviction that people with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities have the right to as independent and as meaningful a lifestyle as possible is the departure point and the underlying theme of this book. Written by the parents of two young women with disabilities, this book follows the attempts to help them achieve their dream of a home of their own, supported by twenty-four hour care.

Home at Last is an indispensable source of information for parents, carers, social workers, health and social services and politicians making decisions in the area of community care.
