Sheltered Living Conditions.
Netherland's Central Society for Rehabilitation, The Hague.
Resulting from a study conducted by the Advisory Housing Committee of the Dutch Society for Rehabilitation, the report describes housing conditions and possibilities for the physically handicapped in the Netherlands. Four categories of sheltered living conditions are described and analyzed: residential centers, supervised residential centers, specialized residential centers, and nursing homes. For each of the conditions, services are discussed and a checklist is provided which indicates comparisons of admission criteria, social situations, daily activities, medical assistance available, and characteristics of patients most appropriate for each situation. An addendum to the study examines the concept of a multi-purpose residential center designed for the aged (married and single), single persons of all ages, and the physically handicapped. A floor plan of an apartment designed for a handicapped couple is provided. (RD)
