A study of the measurement of changes occurring in long-term psychiatric patients discharged to residential care in the community

  • Adrian E. G. Skinner (a1) and Christine M. Williams (a1)
Extract

As more health authorities close large psychiatric hospitals the provision of small local facilities in which former residents of such hospitals are housed is increasing. Such houses tend to share many common characteristics dictated both by practical necessity and by deliberate policy – they tend to be large Victorian houses chosen because they have a larger number of bedrooms and they tend to be run in a much less formal manner than hospital wards (Goldberg, 1985).
