Cocks, E., Boaden, R.,

Academic Literature

2011

This study identified the characteristics of This study identified the characteristics of Personalised Residential Supports (PRS) as reported by key stakeholder groups, including people with developmental disabilities, family members and service providers.

PRS was conceived initially in the study as having four key criteria in the support arrangements – a high degree of: individualisation; individual/family influence; informal relationships; and, person-centredness. Four methods of data collection were used to develop a descriptive framework for PRS: a review of empirical and descriptive literature, case studies, a focus group and a series of written surveys.

The resulted PRS quality framework made up of nine themes: Assumptions, Leadership, My Home, One Person at a Time, Planning, Control, Support, Thriving and Social Inclusion. The themes expressed in the PRS framework have relevance to all forms of supported accommodation.
