John has been in our care for over 20 years and has rarely chosen to go out.</p></div>→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/john-enjoys-first-ever-holiday/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a>

<div class="bt_bb_wrapper"><p> The Care Quality Commission, Public Health England and NHS Improving Quality have recently published reports commissioned by NHS England into the prescribing of psychotic drugs to people with learning disabilities. The research found that there is an alarming rate of over-prescribing of these drugs to people with learning difficulties: the report authored by Public Health England, estimates that up to 35,000 adults with a learning disability are being prescribed an antipsychotic, an antidepressant or both without appropriate clinical justification.</p></div>→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/scale-of-over-medication-is-now-out-in-the-open/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a>

<div class="bt_bb_wrapper"><p> We learn about the world constantly through our senses and by interacting with it. This process of exploration and learning starts in childhood and continues throughout our lives. However, people with learning difficulties may not have had the same opportunities to explore and interact with their environment, and people with acquired brain injuries may need to repeat some of these learning experiences.</p></div>→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/sensory-awareness-groups/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a>
