Currently, 9% of the Taiwanese population is age 65 and older. The elderly population living with chronic illnesses such as stroke is increasing. To a large extent, family members care for them at home. In Taiwan, care of the elderly family members, especially one's parents or in-laws is expected and is considered a filial duty. However, quality home care services or community-based programs to support and assist family members are inadequate. Few families have hired foreign housekeepers to help with care. The purpose of this qualitative descriptive exploring study, guided by Parse's theory of human becoming, was to investigate the experience of quality of life for family members caring for older persons with stroke at home. Using open-ended questions, the researcher conducted interviews with 7 women and 1 man between 29 and 66 years of age in their home. The data were analyzed through a process of analysis-synthesis. Three themes representing participants' core ideas were: (1) bearing witness confirms endearment, (2) burdening - unburdening emerges with restriction, and (3) hopes and dreams for new possibilities. Discussions on nursing practice and social policy are provided.
