 The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of made-to-order occupational therapy using “the management tool for daily life performance” for dependent community-dwelling elderly program by occupational therapists. This study comprised a randomized controlled multi-center trial. The subjects were elderly in need of certified long-term care, who used commuting rehabilitation services at facilities in 16 prefectures. The intervention group received occupational therapy of the made-to-order program using “the management tool for daily life performance”. The control group received usual training. The outcomes were measured from activity of daily living (ADL), instrumental activity of daily living (IADL), and health-related quality of life (HRQL). All outcomes were assessed at baseline and after one month by occupational therapists. The outcome data were subjected to repeated two-way ANOVA. There was a significant study group×time interaction on the intervention group by HRQL (p<0.001). The results demonstrate the effectiveness of made-to-order occupational therapy using “the management tool for daily life performance” for dependent community-dwelling elderly.
