Abstract

Reviews research literature on community integration of people with severe mental handicaps living in staffed residential settings. It is noted that the definition of community integration has developed as the provision of community-based alternatives to traditional institutions has proceeded. Initial concern with residence in the community and the reestablishment of more frequent family contact has been broadened to embrace use of community amenities, participation, and friendship. Research findings generally validate the development of community provisions in the place of long-stay hospitals. The need for promoting social integration for people with mental handicaps beyond the limits of family, staff, and other people with mental handicaps is noted.
