Care House follows six months of life at The Cusick’s care home in York. The residents here have learning difficulties and what is known as ‘challenging behaviour’- the kind of behaviour that has got some of them in trouble with the law.
John and Rose Cusick are the husband and wife team who run the care home. This film explores their unique and often controversial approach to care and their special relationship with the residents.
This is an immensely moving film about a group of people who don’t fit into society. Beneath their stories is a profound question about society’s treatment of people with behavioural problems.
