AbstractInvestigated the cost-effectiveness of the first psychiatric long-stay care home in Hong Kong, which opened in 1990. This was a prospective cohort study of the first 43 patients (aged 21-79 yrs) discharged to the long-stay care home from Castle Peak Hospital, who were followed-up for 2 years. Patients had significantly improved social and community skills while remaining behaviourally and symptomatically stable. The long-stay care home provided a less restrictive environment than Castle Peak Hospital, and patients' satisfaction was high. The recurring costs for the long-stay care home were lower than for the hospital. The only statistically significant adverse finding was deterioration in personal health care skills 2 years after leaving the medical setting. This study provides the first scientific evidence in Hong Kong to show that the long-stay care home is a cost-effective means of successfully rehabilitating a group of long-stay mental hospital inpatients who do not qualify for halfway houses but require only minimal nursing care (less than 2.5 hours per week).
