Stancliffe, Roger J.; Keane, Sian
Journal of Intellectual and Developmental Disability, v25 n4 p281-305 Dec 2000
Consumer outcomes and recurrent service costs were compared for 31 individuals with disabilities in group homes and 56 individuals living semi-independently in Australia. Participants living semi-independently had significantly less social dissatisfaction, used community facilities more frequently and independently, participated more in domestic tasks, and had greater empowerment.
