Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the main results of a Department of Healthfunded research project which investigated the quality and costs of residential supports for people with learning disabilities. The main findings were that the adjusted costs of communitybased supports were higher than residential campuses and village communities; within communitybased provision there were no statistically significant differences between the adjusted costs of supported living, small group homes and group homes for 46 people; communitybased provision and village communities offered better care than residential campuses; there appeared to be distinct benefits associated with communitybased provision and village communities; within communitybased provision there were benefits associated with smaller size and supported living arrangements.
