Nursing home disability

Story Details

At just 19 Chris and Diane Marshall found they could no longer look after their mentally disabled son and despite their wishes, were forced to give him up.

Unfortunately the only accommodation available was a nursing home. Ben became one of 6000 young people around the country committed to homes for the elderly... Places totally inappropriate to their needs and it’s a situation that’s likely to get worse in future.
