In Great Britain we have a habit of providing for ‘difficult’ minority groups in segregate institutions and those suffering traumatic tetraplegia are no exception. It is a tradition which has roots in the Poor Law and which comes down to us today virtually unchanged. Only rarely can someone who depends heavily on others for personal help, and who for some reason does not have the support of — or wishes to live independently of — his or her family, find an alternative system of accommodation and care.
(Davis, in Brechin et al., 1981, p. 322)
