This action research study focuses on developing an integrated care model for bedridden elderly individuals in Pho Yai Subdistrict, Warin Chamrap District, Ubon Ratchathani Province, Thailand. The objectives are two fold: firstly, to examine the current state of integrated care for the homebound and bedridden elderly population, and secondly, to formulate a tailored integrated care model. The research comprises three main steps: investigating contextual factors (Step 1), developing the model based on findings and literature (Step 2), and evaluating it with a specific sample group(60 individuals) (Step 3), Data from focus group discussions (40 individuals) and in-depth interviews (8 participants) were analyzed using content analysis and statistical measures. Findings indicate a high level of knowledge among the sample group (81.7%) regarding care conditions for bedridden homebound patients. The overall level of care development for the elderly and bedridden patients is reported as high (Mean = 201.41), with management demonstrating the highest level (44.61%). The study introduces the PHOYAI Model for integrated care, consisting of P= Planning & Participation, H = Holistic Care, O = Organization, Y = Young old active aging Program, A = Access & Audit and I &C = Information & Communication resulting in increased stakeholder knowledge and readiness. Evaluation shows high satisfaction (Mean = 201.41, SD = 11.92). Recommendations include adopting the PHOYAI Model by relevant agencies to ensure efficient and quality care, leading to improved health outcomes and a better quality of life.
