A brief but powerful paper containing some insights into the history of institutions and the gradual closures of such places. The author notes that although the standards of care and comfort have risen, there is still little evidence of participation in home and community by people who have been moved from institutions. He stresses that to heal the great institutional damage, people must have many more choices and be given more control over their own lives. Keyword: Self Determination,
