Participants Semi-structure interview was conducted to 11 visiting nurses who have experienced to care for the elderly focusing on their strengths. Methods The data was analyzed using Modified Grounded Theory Approach. Kinoshita, Y. (2007). Modified grounded theory approach. Tokyo: Kobundo (in Japanese). Results The results showed that 《Finding strength》 was followed by 《Grasping strength of the elderly》, and 《Nursing approach utilizing strength》 was finally introduced. When the patients’ clinical condition is relatively stable, the nurses’ practice was divided into three subcategories: 【Intervention utilizing strength】. 【Intervention moderating strength】, and 【Intervention building base of strength】. Conclusion The results suggest that in the practice of care for the elderly who make a living with change of their physical condition affected by illness and aging, nurses need to focus on the strengths of the elderly as well as to believe in the ability of the elderly. In addition, nurses should support the independent living of the elderly considering stabilization of their clinical condition. Figure 1.
