    Abstract

    The master's thesis presents the quality of life of adults with intellectual disabilities who live at home and those who stay in institutions. The quality of life is analyzed from the point of view of persons with intellectual disabilities who are actively involved in an occupational activity centre on a daily basis. The research tried to establish whether there was a difference in the quality of life between the two groups and in which areas this difference was most pronounced. In the theoretical part, the areas that influence the quality of life of an individual are studied, as well as the reasons why the quality of life is an important factor in life. The field of adult education with intellectual disabilities was highlighted, as well as the possibilities of employment and living. In the empirical part, a quantitative analysis of data was carried out using a closed-type questionnaire. Fifty-eight people were included in the study, of whom twenty-eight people lived in the institution and twenty-nine people lived at home. The questionnaire consisted of twenty-four questions that covered the eight areas according to Schalock: emotional well-being, relationships, material well-being, personal development, physical well-being, self-determination, integration into the environment and rights. The analysis of results in most areas did not show statistically significant differences in the quality of life among the group of adults with intellectual disabilities living in the institution and those who live at home. An important difference was found only in the field of social inclusion. Persons with intellectual disabilities who live at home are less socially involved than those that live in an institution. On the basis of the obtained results, we prepared guidelines for greater social involvement of persons with intellectual disabilities who live at home and are involved in the activities of an occupational activity centre on a daily basis.
