About this title:

Synopsis:

'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.

About the Author:

Pat Fitton's experience of profound and multiple disabilities comes from caring for her daughter Kathy, who died in 1991 at the age of twenty-seven. She has worked in several parents' groups to improve services and has campaigned to increase parental participation in planning procedures in social services and health. She has taught in inner London secondary schools since 1964 and has been involved with the integration into mainstream of children with a range of disabilities.

Jean Willson's experience comes from caring for her daughter Victoria. She does consultancy work on a range of issues connected with learning disabilities, and works both locally and nationally to improve services for people with profound multiple disabilities and their carers.

Carol O' Brien has been involved in developing community-based services and projects for people with disabilities, and as a freelance consultant has worked with parents and other professionals to set up a house in Camden similar to Victoria's and Kathy's.
