Abstract

           This quasi-experimental study was conducted to examine the effects of a case management program on the functional status and quality of life of older adults with stroke living at home in Bangkok. Study subjects were purposively recruited from those, who registered at two public health centres. An experimental group (n=25) received a 12- week case management program whereas a comparison group (n=26) received usual care. Data were collected by the researcher using a questionnaire before and after the experiment.

              According to t-test, the experimental group had higher mean scores of functional status and quality of life than before the experiment with statistical significance (p<0.05). The findings support that the case management program, which applied Orem’s Theory, can improve the quality of life of dependent older adults with stroke. A further study should be conducted to examine long-term effects of this case management program on functional status and quality of life with a clinical outcome follow-up.
