Objective (s): In order to prevent the complications of the disease and improve the quality of life of patients with stroke, home-based care programs could be effective. This study aimed to assess such an intervention.
Methods: This quasi-experimental study was performed on 60 patients with stroke in Zahedan, Iran, in 2019. The intervention group received rehabilitation trainings for three sessions each lasting for 45 minutes. The control group received the usual care. The specific quality of life questionnaire for stroke patients was administered one and three months after the intervention. Data were analyzed using SPSS-22 software performing repeated measures analysis, independent t-test and chi-square.
Results: The mean score of total quality of life in one and three months after the intervention was significantly higher in intervention group compared to the control group (p <0.001). The results of repeated measures analysis of variance regarding the effect of time and group on quality of life and its dimensions showed a statistically significant difference between the two groups (P <0.001).
