ABSTRACT: An elderly man with contracture of extremities due to cerebral infarction was admitted to a hospital because of both malnutrition and bedsore. His wife was afraid of taking care of him at home after he was discharged from the hospital due to a lack of homecare knowledge. Prior to his discharge, conferences toward a successful homecare by the people concerned from various kinds of professions studied all sorts of risk factors to prevent him from back to hospital soon. Thereby he was successfully cared at home more than one year.
