Community care and deinstitutionalization: a review.

Abstract

After one hundred years the family is once again being asked to assume its major function as care-giver for the long-term mentally ill. Is the family able to support chronic mental patients? Is it willing to assume responsibility for these patients? This article addresses these questions, as well as others, and discusses the implications of family policy for community care.
