Ayla Günal [1]


Aim: The aim of this study is to investigate the 
effect of social problem solving approach on 
caregiving role, depression and quality of life in 
caregivers of stroke individuals.  
Methods: Sixty-one stroke caregivers were 
included in this study. Caregivers were divided into 
two groups as the study and control groups. Basic 
occupational therapy strategies were explained for 
groups in hospital environment. Moreover, social 
problem solving approach started to be carried out 
in the hospital environment until post-discharge 12th 
week was used for the study group. The outcomes 
were evaluated using Bakas Caregiving Outcomes 
Scale, Beck Depression Inventory, Nottingham 
Health Profile and Person Environment Fit Scale.  
Results: When the groups were compared after the 
social problem solving approach, a statistically 
significant difference was found in favor of the 
study group in terms of the burden of care, and 
depression level and the emotional reaction 
subdivision scores of the quality of life (p<0.05).  
Conclusion: Social problem solving approach 
provided positive outputs in increasing the quality 
of life, decreasing depression level and caregiving 
load of stroke individuals’ caregivers
