Dispersed or clustered housing for adults with intellectual disability: a systematic review

Mansell, Jim, Beadle-Brown, Julie,

Academic Literature

2009

The purpose of this review was to evaluate the available research on the quality and costs of dispersed community-based housing compared to clustered housing. Dispersed housing appears to be superior to clustered housing on the majority of quality indicators studied. The only exception to this is that village communities for people with less severe disabilities have some benefits; this is not, however, a model which can be feasibly provided for everyone.
