This paper examines the lives of people with disabilities living with their families in the Red River Delta region during the period of the promotion of industrialization, modernization, and international integration. Concretely, I am concerned with the roles played by Vietnamese families in the lives of family members with disabilities. The results show that the families play a vital role in maintaining the daily lives of family members with disabilities. However, the presence of these individuals in their family is often passive and may easily be influenced by the movement of family members such as marriage, having a child and getting a job, etc. .
