Abstract

The authors report on a study of 1999 residents of 26 private proprietary homes for adults in the metropolitan New York City area; 76 per cent of the residents were former psychiatric inpatients. The former patients were compared with the other residents in areas of physical and psychiatric functioning and social performance; the former patients showed more dysfunction due to psychological problems than the other residents, who tended to be older and suffer from physical problems. The former patients were also categorized into three groups according to whether their needs were considered greater than, less than, or consistent with the level of services provided in the homes; the results suggest that a substantial proportion of former patients may be more appropriately placed in other facilities.
