A New Health And Care System (eBook)
Escaping The Invisible Asylum
de Alex Fox
Sobre o livro
How do we find sustainable and human ways to care for people with long-term needs? This book reveals the ways in which public services squander the potential of people with long term support needs and the creativity and caring capacity of front line workers. Drawing on the ethos, practices and economics of human focused initiatives such as Shared Lives, this book outlines a new model for public services to replace the invisible asylum. This approach, focused on achieving and maintaining wellbeing, rather than on reacting to crisis or attempting to fix people, would both ask of us and offer us more. Responsibilities, resources, and risks would be more fairly and transparently shared. The book offers steps which we all citizens, front line services, and government could take to achieve this vision.
