Small Living Centers for Adult Retardates. Final Report.
Taylor, T. K.; And Others
The study was undertaken to develop guidelines for the establishment of living centers for mentally handicapped adults. Findings from a questionnaire sent to about 75 facilities across the country are presented (legal form of operation, location, bed capacity, waiting list, admission restrictions, coeducational or one sex only, financial support, and fees). Thirteen residential facilities for the mentally handicapped were visited, and four facilities located in Arizona are described in detail. Special attention is paid to setting, staff, program, attitude of residents, and methods of buying, preparing, and serving food. Questionnaires used and linegraphs are included, as are guidelines for establishing programs and services for the mentally handicapped. (KW)
