Abstract: 

The primary purpose of this study was to update a Canadian homesharing agency study conducted in 1988 (see Gutman, Doyle, Melliship & Baldwin, 1989). Additionally, we wished to see howCanadian homesharing agencies had developed over the five year period in terms of approximating I trends reported in the US literature on homesharing. Comparisons will be made between datacollected in 1988 and 1993. The specific objectives of the study were to: 1) Update the original homesharing study, and describe similarities and differences of Canadian homesharing agencies between the two time periods. 2) Compare American and Canadian research findings. 3) Determine if Canadian homesharing agencies now have had experience with the development of homesharing with a care component and/or group shared residences.
