Introduction: Geriatric syndromes lead to a number of disabilities which dramatically affect the quality of life in ageing. Facilitating the process of self–care can improve the elder's health to a great extent which has received less attention in previous studies. This study aimed at investigating the relationship between the disability and self–care in the elderly of Yazd.Methods: This cross–sectional study was conducted in Yazd; 234 elderly participants were selected through cluster random sampling. WHODAS–II questionnaire and a researcher–designed self–care questionnaire were utilized and collected data analyzed using Mann–Whitney U, Kruskal–Wallis H, chi–square and Spearman correlation coefficient tests.Results: The mean score of disability was 38.55 ±13.71 (ranging from 0 to 92) and the mean score of self–care was 61.57± 15.94 (ranging from 0 to 118). There was no statistically significant correlation between total score of disability and self–care, however, correlation was detected between the subscales.Conclusion: Given the high level of disability in a majority of elders and low level of their self–care, self–care promotion programs and prevention of disabilities in collaboration with their families and health centers are recommended.
