Abstract

Aims: This study compares the characteristics and quality of life outcomes of people in institutions and group homes in Hungary.

Results: Smaller-scale community-based arrangements in Hungary have similar advantages and weaknesses to those reported in other countries. People who live in group homes enjoyed more choice and participated in more domestic activities. Community participation was related to the location of the setting rather than type of provision. People who lived in villages and rural areas had fewer opportunities in their local community. Levels of psychotropic medication were alarmingly high in all three groups, particularly in institutions and independent group homes.

Conclusion: Limitations as well as implications for policy and practice are discussed.
