Deinstitutionalisation: seven central lessons of the past decade

Written Material

Lord writes that too often 'deinstitutionalisation' has simply meant 'dumping', 'abandonment', 'cost saving' or nothing more than the creation of smaller 'community institutions' in which people are still congregated and which still completely dominate and control individuals' lives. There are many institutions still operating (in Canada and Australia) and these seven lessons are therefore a kind of map to show that the process of returning people to their communities can still be done properly.
