However, FAMILY role on the REHABILITATION team and program should present on FAMILY-based. Aim: The effect of home-based STROKE REHABILITATION on QUALITY OF LIFE of STROKE survivors and their FAMILY caregiver strain.Method: This study was Quasi- Experimental Research. The target populations were all ischemic STROKE patients who were admitted to Dr. Shariaati Hospital and their caregiver. Convenience sampling was used in which 30 patients and their CAREGIVERS who had entrance criteria were selected; and data were collected based on the demographic characteristic, STROKE specific QUALITY OF LIFE scale (SS-QOL) and Caregiver Strain Index (CSI) instruments. The participants received STROKE REHABILITATION program from hospitalization to 8weeks after discharging from hospital at their home. The study consisted 3 sessions of face to face patient and their FAMILY caregiver education in 3 continues day after intensive period of the STROKE event. The CSI and SS-QOL were assessed before and after the intervention. The paired t-test, Bunferoni and variance analysis were used for data analyzez.Results: The mean score for CSI befor intervention was 33.3±15.5 and after intervention was 24.6±11.1 (p<0.01). In addition, the mean score for SS-QOL befor an intervention was 136.1±34.8 and after the intervention was 191±35.0 (p<0.01). Dimensions of movement and function of upper extremities in the SS-QOL showed significant differences between other aspects of the questionnaire.
