Abstract

Objectives: To evaluate the self-rated or subjective quality of life of individuals with schizophrenia in residential care settings. Method: Forty individuals who fulfilled DSM-IV criteria for schizophrenia were interviewed using the Lancashire Quality of Life Profile. Results: Fifty-two per cent of the sample reported their global subjectivequality of life to be satisfactory. Global subjective quality of life was rated lower than the majority of life domains evaluated. The areas of leastsatisfaction included finances and work. However, the majority of patientswere satisfied with their living situation, safety, health, religion, leisure, social and family relations. There was some evidence of a quality of life gradient across these residential settings. Conclusions: Although these patients were satisfied with the majority of life domains assessed, these data need to be interpreted cautiously given the limitations of the study design and the method used to evaluate quality of life.
