The Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI), the regulatory body responsible for maintaining and enhancing standards in social care across the UK, has delivered its annual report on the domiciliary care service provided by Independence Homes. The report, available for viewing here, once again describes the services delivered by the company as being excellent.
Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine believe they may be on the way to discovering new ways to treat epilepsy without the unpleasant side effects caused by many of the current anti-epileptic medications. The researchers discovered that the drug valproic acid boosts the amount of the protein neuropeptide Y in the brain by about 50%.
Independence Homes is a specialist provider of care and support for adults with epilepsy. Demand for our services has grown consistently in recent times, meaning we only have a small number of vacancies in our care homes and supported living units for people with severe epilepsy and learning disabilities. All of our units are community based, with a genuine emphasis on integration.
