A Study of Service Delivery Models for Homebound Rehabilitation: A Monograph of the Programmatic Research Project for the Rehabilitation of Homebound Persons.
Rusalem, Herbert; And Others
Reported are findings of a study to obtain information on the homebound vocational rehabilitation services offered by 20 agencies. Outlined are components (such as scope, funding, intake and evaluation, and success factors) of programs classified into five major models: crafts model (homebound persons produce craft items); subcontract model (homebound persons work on subcontracts from private industry); mixed model (provision is made simultaneously for both craft and subcontract work activities); facility-based model (homebound persons are served year-round by being transported to a facility for rehabilitation, employment, or social purposes); and comprehensive model (social, education, mental, health, vocaitonal, and/or recreational services are delivered as a total package to homebound persons). Discussed are generalizations from study findings which include that homebound rehabilitation programing is feasible under current conditions, that the sheltered workshop seems to provide an especially favorable locus for homebound rehabilitation program, and that an inclusive concept of rehabilitation is among the variables related to program success.
