Residential Services for Persons with Developmental Disabilities: Status and Trends through 1995. Report #49.
Prouty, Robert, Ed.; Lakin, K. Charlie, Ed.
This report from the ongoing National Residential Information Systems Project on Residential Services provides statistics on persons with mental retardation and related developmental disabilities (MR/DD) receiving residential services in the U.S. for the year ending June 30,1995, as well as comparative statistics from earlier years. The report includes a description of how the information was collected and an executive summary. The executive summary highlights key findings in the areas of: (1) state-operated residential services, including the number and size of residential facilities, the number of residents, expenditures, and facility closures; (2) all state and non-state residential services, including number and size of residential settings, number of residents, interstate variability, state and non-state residential setting by type, and patterns of change in residential service systems from 1977 to 1995; and (3) Medicaid funded services, including intermediate care facilities for persons with mental retardation, Medicaid Home and Community Based Services, nursing home residents, and Medicaid Community Supported Living Arrangements. Findings indicate the number of state-operated facilities continues to grow, the number of residential settings (including care and instruction) for persons with MR/DD is also growing, and the number of intermediate care facilities has decreased.
