 This study aimed to show the advantages of the Life History Chart (LC) for the staff and patients at Sanatorium Ward Hospital and Geriatric Health Services Facility. The staff were administered a questionnaire to determine the degree to which they understood geriatric patients and the advantages of the LC. Free description responses for each question were grouped into subcategories. The results showed no significant change in the degree in which they understood geriatric patients compared with before introduction to the LC. However, analysis of free description text found subcategories such as “change of awareness in the caregiver” and “simple and easy grasping of life history” to be important to the caregiver. Subcategories such as “utilization in practical care” were found to be important for patients. As the study indicated merits of the LC, it is necessary to instruct the staff how to implement LC.
