Abstract 

Pukeora Home for the Physically Disabled was opened on the seventh of May 1957.  At that time it was generally considered to be the symbol of an enlightened approach to the care of people with severe physical disabilities.  Since 1957 the concept of an isolated institution providing a ‘home for life’ has constantly been challenged by those people who believe that the segregation of disabled people in isolated institutions is quite unacceptable.
