What does Care in the Community mean for people with severe learning disabilities? After 18 years in a hospital ward, John is moving to a small house in the community. For over 21 years, Peter has lived at home with his mother without support. Community care can be positive and exciting but it is not a cheap option .
This film is of historical interest and reflects the cultural attitudes, medical procedures and language of the time it was made. But the issues raised are timeless.
