Dilapidated villa

These villas were once home to 20 or so people each. People with learning disabilities and mental health problems. Women who got pregnant out of wedlock. People from troubled backgrounds.

A lot of the people who would have been admitted here are now cared for at home. Those who need to be in a hospital have personal space instead of sharing a dormitory with 19 other people.

I still feel a bit sad for the building, abandoned and falling into disrepair. Neglected and unwanted. Something about a dilapidated building always tugs at my heart a little.
