I have believed for a long time that a good lifestyle is a balanced one. Everything and anything can be good for you if it is done in moderation. Also the more you work and experience stress, the more this needs to be balanced by leisure and fun.
I have to acknowledge and believe that if someone is not working and therefore not experiencing the related stress, then it is correct that disabled people are not entitled to support for leisure activities as this is not equal treatment with non-disabled peers. However, if disabled people are working then to maintain a balanced lifestyle then they need access and relevant support to leisure activities.
This may therefore need social care funders to think differently outcome outcomes and needs to acknowledge how working can change the needs of a person and how ‘having a holiday’ can not always be seen as a luxury.
