Abstract

Aim: This study aimed to explore the costs and outcomes associated with moving people with disabilities from institutional to community-based and independent living.

Method: A review and analysis of the existing literature on deinstitutionalization and community-based living was conducted to draw out the lessons for countries just beginning this transition process.

Results: This paper will present the conclusions from this analysis.

Conclusions: The study provided recommendations for European organizations and Member States to help the transition to occur. These recommendations include a

fourfold focus on 1.Strengthening the vision of new possibilities in the community; 2.Sustaining public dissatisfaction with current arrangements; 3.Creating some practical demonstrations of how things can be better; 4.Reducing resistance to change by managing incentives for the different actors in the process.
