Description:
In recent years, there has been an expansion in the variety of services provided by voluntary organisations for the care of the mentally handicapped. This includes "the provision of day care centres and hostels (usually suburban houses) where the mentally handicapped could live. Most of the funding for such services comes from the Department of Health. The main purpose of the study was to compare the cost of keeping a person in a hostel with that in a large residential centre. The study also involved looking at the cost of day care centres. The costs relating to hostels run by four different voluntary organisations were examined and two day care centres were also examined.
Keywords:
