Abstract: The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between the daily activity of disabled eldery and their consciousness of their occupational roles as a member of a family. To analyze the daily activity of the elderly, a portable instrument for long-term ambulatory monitoring of posture change was adopted. The subjects in this study were six disabled elderly females aged from 71 to 83. Three of the subjects were housed in a facility of health care services, and the remaining were living in their own homes. All of the subjects were interviewed in regard to their consciousness on their occupational roles as a member of a family. From the results obtained by the posture measurement, it was demonstrated that living conditions strongly affect a subject's posture change and activity levels, e.g., the total duration of standing and stooped positions of the subjects in the facility were significantly shorter than in the homes. Of great interest was that the significant decrease in activity was observed in the subject who answered in the interview that she no longer had any important occupational roles in her family. These results strongly suggest that, for planning and implementing occupational therapy services for disabled elderly, it is very important not only to consider their living conditions, but also to support their consciousness of being an indispensable person who is playing some role as a member of a family.
