<div class="bt_bb_wrapper"><p> There is much debate on whether community-based support is better than ‘institutional care’ but of course, it depends on the individual. It also depends on the type of care and support.

Service users may come to us several years after they have sustained a brain injury and after they have already had a period of acute rehabilitation.</p></div>→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/144-boughton-green-road-regains-headway-accreditation/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a>



<div class="bt_bb_wrapper"><p> Reports show that in today’s modern world, where people are ‘online and connected’ 24 hours a day, they are less likely to know their neighbours. This can lead to a sense of loss of community, isolation and loneliness.</p> <p>For people with disabilities, this risk of being isolated from the local community is even greater.</p></div>→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/the-joys-and-benefits-of-the-local-pub/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a>
