 After developing a cerebral hemorrhage, the client and her mother have lived in isolation for about 50 years, constantly refusing various welfare services, which lead to difficulty introducing home-based occupational therapy. For about 8 months, the occupational therapist repeatedly intervened with suggestions while listening to and sympathizing with the client and her mother. As a result, their values and preferences gradually became clear, and the occupational therapist discovered the client's preferred activities. The client shared her broad sphere of activities and living space as her mother began watching over the client. This study reviews efficacy of home-based occupational therapy, analyzes the client's new activities along with the client's and her mother's verbal behaviors, and discusses why the behavior of the two people changed.
