Abstract:

The aim of this study was to evaluate home health care intervention for cerebral stroke patients and their caregivers in Benha City. Design: Quasi -experimental design was utilized. Setting: The study was conducted at the Neurologic Outpatients' Clinics of Benha University Hospital, Health Insurance Hospital and Teaching Hospital in Benha City. The sample of this study included 100 stroke disease patients and their caregivers chosen randomly from total 1000 stroke patients. Tools: Three tools are used I: An interviewing questionnaire was used to assess socio - demographic characteristics of the cerebral stroke patients and their caregivers, knowledge of the patients and their caregivers about the disease and knowledge of cerebral stroke patients about daily living activities. II: Questionnaire to assess caregivers' burden scale for cerebral stroke patients. III: An observational checklist was used to observe cerebral stroke patient's home environment, caregivers' practices to their patients and degree of self-dependency of cerebral stroke patients. Results: 64% of the stroke patients were males with mean age 54.3±18.2, 84% of caregivers were females with mean age 36.6±12.4. Only 4% of the stroke patients had good knowledge regarding stroke pre intervention compared by 90% post intervention, also 6% of the stroke patient caregivers had good knowledge regarding stroke pre intervention compared by 93% post intervention and 14% of them had good practices regarding stroke pre intervention compared by 63% post intervention. Conclusion: There was highly statistically significant relation in the total knowledge score of the stroke patients and their caregivers pre and post intervention implementation and there was a positive significant correlation between stroke patient caregivers' total knowledge score and their total practices pre and post intervention implementation. Recommendations: Health educational program should provide to the stroke patients and their caregivers with the needed knowledge and practices before hospital discharge.
