Guiding principals were: What attitude do the helprecievers take to their own living conditions? What attitude do the helpers take to helprecievers and their living conditions? Four helprecivers were interviewed. They lived in three different group homes. Staff members selected which helprecievers to be interviewed. Also four helpers were interviewed. They were not connected to these helprecievers but were employed in a fourth group home. The interviewes were unstructured in order to give qualitative data. The helpers expected the helprecievers to improve themselfes, implying that hey would be more active and alert. The helpers used activating methods to try to change them. The helprecievers seamed to act in a humble way and the absence of initiative was a characteristic feature. They apprehended they had quite a lot of selfdetermination. In some connections in their own dwellings they lived accordingly to rules prescribed by others. Keywords: mental disabilities, group home, living conditions. (Less)
