Abstract: The objective of this study is to explore the effective occupational therapy service to enrich the quality of life of the disabled elderly through their own life story tellings concerning self concept and life satisfaction. Ethnographical method, one of the methods of qualitative research is used in this study. Fourteen female disabled elderly, from age 73 to 90, participated in this study. Five of the subjects are hospitalized, another five are staying in health service facilities for the aged, and four are living in their own homes. From the analysis of their stories by the subjects, it revealed that the main themes of their story telling are constructed by aging and related life events, and interwoven psychosocial and sociocultural dimensions of the life events. Self concepts of the disabled elderly are divided into two:positive and negative. Most of the elderly narrated their life as a satisfied one. Their illness and disabilities, and their positive or negative self concepts are the major factors that influence adaptations to each one's living conditions. From these results, some considerations are discussed for planning and implementing occupational therapy services for the disabled elderly, especially considering individual needs.
