This study tested a theoretical model of quality of life (QOL) of stroke survivors derived from King’s conceptual framework. The model proposed that stroke survivors’ perceptual integrity (cognition), social support, and perception of level of disability (POLD) would predict their quality of life. In addition, the relative contribution of age, time since stroke, and number of strokes to the stroke survivor’s QOL was investigated. Participants were stroke survivors (102) attending clinics affiliated with an urban university 43 to 93 years of age, mean 63.21 (S D=10.54). Measures used were: Cognitive subscales of the Functional Independence Measures, the Social Support Questionnaire Short Form, a Visual Analog Scale, and the Stroke-Specific Quality of Life Scale. Structural equation model (SEM) was used to examine the proposed model and for hypotheses testing. POLD was a significant predictor of quality of life and explained 27% of the variance. Cognition had a negative and significant effect on POLD directly and quality of life indirectly through POLD. However, social support had nonsignificant effects on POLD and QOL. Age and time since stroke were not significantly related to QOL. Number of strokes had an indirect and significant effect through POLD on QOL. These findings indicate that the assessment of QOL of stroke survivors should be used to plan interventions, provide empirical support for the middle range theory of QOL of stroke survivors and lend credibility to King’s conceptual framework.
