The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of Adult Daycare Service (ADS) based on partnership with caregivers for older adults who have had a stroke and their family caregivers.
A quasi-experimental intervention study design was used. Older adults with a stroke from two ADS centers in Korea were assigned to either the experimental (n=16) or control group (n=13). The experimental group received health education and a tailored rehabilitation program by trained ADS center nurses for 12 weeks. Based on the concept of partnership family caregivers also participated in the intervention.
The mean ages of the elders were 76.6 years (experimental) and 77.0 years (control). There were no significant differences in socio-demographic and clinical characteristics between the two groups. Intervention participants showed improvement in diastolic blood pressure (p =.019), cognitive function (p<.001), instrumental activities of daily living (p<.001), and nutritional status (p<.001).
Further research is needed to develop nursing interventions for older adults following a stroke, being treated in long term care facilities, as well as, at home and to evaluate long term effects of a partnership intervention to enhance participants adherence, health status, and the quality of life for older adults with stroke.
