This paper reviews studies of parental attitudes on the deinstitutionalisation of a family member. It shows parents were very satisfied with institutional placement before their family member moved into the community. When family members had moved into the community, parents showed a higher level of satisfaction with the community setting. It also summarises parental concerns of deinstitutionalisation, their continuing concerns about their children's community placement and their perceptions of positive outcomes of community living.
