Comparison of Family-Care and Group Homes as Alternatives to Institutions.
Willer, Barry; Intagliata, James
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v86 n6 p588-95 May 1982
Two residential alternatives--family care and group homes--for deinstitutionalized mentally retarded adults were compared. Residents in both settings displayed essentially no improvement in self-care skills. Family care home Ss were significantly more likely to improve their maladaptive behavior. Group home Ss were more likely to improve community living skills. (Author)
