Personal finances for long-stay psychiatric patients resettled into the community

  • Ross Fuhrmann and Clare Reeder (a1)
Abstract

It is important to ensure that the financial provision received by the long-stay psychiatric population is maintained as their care is relocated from hospitals to the community. A survey of the provision made by the 20 community homes to which Horton Hospital patients have been resettled was conducted. Comparison with the provision received by patients prior to resettlement revealed that the clothing allowance provided for patients without savings in Horton is often not maintained in the community and that resettled patients receive widely differing and frequently much smaller provision for clothing.
