“Are we moving the full circle?”
People with a disability originally lived with their family, in the family home. Then institutions were developed. These were subsequently closed in favour of more individual support through group homes in the community. Now we see group homes, and similar, losing favour to self- directed approaches
CRUs came out of the failure of institutions, and SDA came out of the failure of CRUs and Day Centres. There are, however, those who say the principle of CRUs and Day Centres can never be right. They say it’s SDA or the highway!
CRU or SDA – That is the question!
LISA Inc believes it is “Horses for Courses”, and “SDA v CRU” will be the subject of a main LISA email bulletin, shortly. Nevertheless, LISA remains committed to consistent and meaningful quality of life care for people, no matter where they live.
We welcome your comments on this controversial subject!
