because they are outsiders who do not easily fit into the usual social care service user categories. They survive the trauma of head injury only to live out their lives in a seemingly uncaring society. This book listens to the voices of service users and carers whose lives have been altered by Traumatic Brain Injury. Their needs and views are given voice through accounts of their life experiences in their Careers of Care. The book also explores Traumatic Brain Injury from the perspective of long term continuing health and social care provision within the current requirements of community care. Different types of residential care provision and care management processes are evaluated for their suitability, without previous ideological bias for or against one provision above another. The book develops social care practice by promoting a strategy of individualised practice for reconciling residential care provision within the requirements of community care. Its recommendations can be transferred from people with Traumatic Brain Injury to other ‘outsider groups’ within the remit of community care. Headway National Head Injuries Association commends this book as a standard reference work. Social workers, nurses, social care managers and workers, occupation therapists, physiotherapists, speech therapists and lawyers working in compensation cases will find the book useful for practice. Service users and carers, it is hoped, will discover that the book reflects certain aspects of their own Careers of Care following Traumatic Brain Injury.
