From Community to Hospital and Back Again Historic/Heritage

from_community_to_hospital_and_back_again


Hear how the history of care for people with learning disabilities has shifted over time, and how community care functions today.

Before the early 19th century, people with learning disabilities were largely ignored in healthcare and medicine. Since practitioners were paid by results, care of those who were considered “incurable” was not a priority. So these people lived in, and relied on the support of, their communities. It was only with state medicine in the nineteenth century that efforts to care – and control – people considered disorderly and unmanageable began.

Using art, photos and archive material, Simon Jarrett explains how care for people with learning disabilities has shifted over time. Lynette Kennedy, clinical nurse specialist, will follow this with a reflection on community support for learning disability today.

This event is open to all. Please book a ticket to attend and the Zoom link will be emailed to you in advance of the event.
