Hmmm... Not sure I agree with all their assumptions of what they consider as 'better'. I think what is 'better' is what suits the individual, not 'one size fits all'.

Been discussing this elsewhere and received this...
Looks a bit propaganda ish as has how many people are so happy with their L.A.s, although based on a flawed methodology and small sample.
what could be useful is the 'residential care' figures and the local comparisons -plus awareness of this is useful , as no doubt its 'findings' will be trotted out as X % are satisfied with L.A social 'care' at some point
