Abstract

Now that hospital resettlement has almost been completed, it is time to take stock of the quality of the alternative residential services provided. The original idea of creating a comprehensive local pattern of provision so that people could leave the family home during early adulthood and enjoy a typical ‘ordinary life’ had implications for (1) the scope of provision, (2) its nature, (3) the status and role of the person being supported, and (4) the quality of opportunity and support offered. The current state of each of these will be considered and recommendations made.
