Abstract

This paper reports follow-up data on an earlier evaluative study (Rapley & Beyer, 1996) of a small community-based dispersed housing service. With the concept of Quality of Life (QOL) becoming established in the literature as an appropriate outcome measure of service practice, the previous study reported the use of the Schalock & Keith (1993) Quality of Life Questionnaire (QOL.Q) as an adjunct to established evaluative measures of service quality. Rapley & Beyer (1996) concluded that measures such as the QOL.Q may offer a useful addition to the evaluative armoury. This study reports service outcome data collected in the same network after a 2-year interval. A positive change in measured quality of life was observed. Overall levels of engagement were static over time. Small positive changes in levels of socially integrative and domestic activities did not reach statistical significance. Changes in QOL.Q scores were consistent with the observed changes in the detail of community and domestic participation.
