Readmissions from registered care homes

Abstract

Registered care homes have been developed in Newham, a deprived inner city borough of about 220000 population, by a number of different housing associations. Some of these provide the care component themselves while others purchase it from separate agencies. The formats of the homes also vary. Features common to all the provision include prolonged preparation of future residents in rehabilitation houses on the Goodmayes Hospital campus prior to taking up residence, particular attention to their compatibility and social networks, and regular individual reviews by a community rehabilitation team which also provides training and support to care staff.
