Özet

Background and purpose: Stroke is a disease with severe consequences for patients and their families. We know very little about family caregivers in our country. The aim of this study is to compare the quality of life of spouses of chronic stroke patients with healthy controls residing in Turkey. We will investigate some objective characteristics of patient and spouse that would have a negative effect on quality of life.
