This study conducted individual in-depth interviews with a total of three study participants, one for each of the disabled person living in the community, the disabled person living in an institution, and the residential institution worker, to identify the narratives of the disabled people and the residential institution worker looking at deinstitutionalization and reveal the voices that couldn't be heard. As a result of examining the narratives derived from the three research subjects who were the study participants, 3 central themes, 7 core categories, and 24 subcategories were formed, and various vivid narratives according to each category were dervied. The thoughts on deinstitutionalization viewed by the study participants were thematically categorized as ‘trying to live with the reality of disability’, ‘confusion between institution and deinstitution’, and ‘steps towards deinstitutionalization’. As each of the three study participants supports the disabled in residential facilities or has different experiences living in residential facilities or communities as a disabled person, they have different perspectives and positions on residential facilities and deinstitutionalization. However, they shared the point that both individuals and society need to make efforts to truly deinstitutionalization the disabled to live their independent lives in our society.
