    Abstract

    [Purpose] The purpose of this study was to clarify the recomendable activities for post-stroke patients. [Subjects and Methods] A survey of 60 stroke patients living at home was conducted by post. The questionnaire comprised 21 questions on activity, psychological adjustment to disability, and quality of life. [Results] The results of cluster analysis divided patients into three types: diverse activity, low activity, and functional recovery specialist types. The diverse activity subjects had the highest scores for the factors of acceptance of psychological adjustment to disability, and feelings of self-efficacy, as well as quality of life. Compared to the low activity subjects, the functional recovery specialist subjects had higher scores for the factors of acceptance of psychological adjustment to disability, and feelings of self-efficacy. [Conclusion] The results suggest that, when providing support encouraging greater activity, with objective of improving quality of life, it is important to encourage the performance of some activities for low activity type subjects, and the performance of activities other than those related to functional recovery for functional recovery specialist type subjects.
