Our purpose of this study is to describe a field of home care in detail and to explore the lay knowledge (or body knowledge) and the particularity of the home care. We research the field by interaction analysis. A patient ‘F’ who has paralysis in the lower half of the body and the left upper limbs, permitted us video recording of her everyday life. We especially focus on the scene of (1) “putting on the jacket” and (2) “putting on the gloves (and so on)” with the help of two caregivers (housekeepers) in this paper.
As a result of our analysis (1), we find that the caregivers move as if they were F’s hands and that the movements of them are overlapped in about 2 seconds. We also find that there is about 5 seconds interval between taking gloves and putting them on (2). ‘F’ holds out her hands, monitoring the caregivers’ movements one after the other. The F’s body consists in the intercorporeality with the caregivers. As A. Nishizaka suggests ‘the body distributed’, the body counters the distribution though F's body seems to be distributed in home care.
