 Out of seventeen patients, thirteen have been found to perform toilet activities differently at home from what was agreed upon at the time of home evaluation. Those thirteen patients were interviewed by the author to clarify the reasons for the changes. These interviews have shown that they decided to perform toilet activities contrary to instructions given to them at the time of home evaluation, because of their own volition or anxiety, their values, participation in care of family. Above all, constraints on the family have influenced the action at home.

 These results suggest that we should take their psychological and social well-being into consideration when offering toilet training, and re-evaluate and re-guide them at home after discharge.
