Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE. We sought to determine the extent to which perceptions of participation in everyday occupationswere affected in a sample of people with predominantly mild stroke. Demographic variables, strokeseverity, community integration, participation in everyday occupations, and perceptions of recovery wereexamined as potential contributors to their perceptions of participation.METHOD. We conducted a cross-sectional study with 116 people with mild to moderate first strokeassessed approximately 6 mo after stroke.RESULTS. Perceptions of participation assessed using the Stroke Impact Scale varied (range 5 19–100),with a mean score of 82. Regression analyses revealed three factors that contributed to perceptions ofparticipation: retention of previous activities, reintegration in home and community, and perception ofstroke recovery.CONCLUSION. Although the majority of participants reported a high level of perceived participation, morethan a third failed to report successful participation.
