Abstract/Description: In working with the disabled and/or handicapped person it is necessary to consider all aspects of social functioning if realistic goals are to be reached in the rehabilitation process. It is recognized that if the family can give interest and support to that member of the family who is disabled and/or handicapped, and agrees to participate in rehabilitation planning that the effect will be helpful. The dichotomy of this study sample is made between those patients living alone and those patients living with some member of their family. The null hypothesis of this study is that there are no differences between the observed and expected frequencies on eleven items of descriptive, social, and clinical information as revealed in the distribution of data for thirty-four adult physically disabled and/or handicapped patients who live with some member of their family and thirty-six adult physically disabled and/or handicapped patients who live alone, which could not occur by chance.
