The concept of functional capacity is particularly useful in the context of aging. Aging while maintaining all its functions does not
mean a problem for both the individual and the community, when their functions begin to deteriorate, problems begin to emerge
(Kalache, A et al., 1987). The concept is closely linked to the maintenance of the autonomy from which the potential loss of
functionality and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as motor diseases, can be maintained, thus enabling the
person to perform his or her self-care in the sense of independence, a primary goal of Rehabilitation Nursing. The quality of care
is one of the targets of Rehabilitation Nursing, confirming its effectiveness when showing results sensitive to Nursing care.
Objective: to develop skills in the area of Rehabilitation Nursing care, through structured intervention plans for elderly people with
a deficit in self-care and mobility disorders. Methodology: The present study is descriptive and exploratory, based on the qualitative
methodology of the case study (multiple case study method) by Robert Yin (2003) and Lopes' (2006) medium-range theory, based
on the theory of self-care deficit of Orem (2001). Results: Considering the increase in the consequences of nursing care, such as
functionality, self-care and patient satisfaction, in addition to the user's capacity for self-management of chronic illness, through
rehabilitation programs, teaching, prevention of return to health services, decreasing the amounts related to the health system.
Conclusion: The structured interposition of Rehabilitation Nursing care, based on a program of motor functional reeducation,
empowerment of the person, translates into gains in self-care, at the level of motor function.
