There are 700,000 new survivors of stroke each year with an average duration of life that exceeds 5 years at a cost of $30 billion annually. Most persons with stroke return home after initial rehabilitation treatment and are cared for by family members. Few published studies have focused on computer-based interventions in order to strengthen caregivers' efforts. Three - 5 purposively selected urban caregivers of persons with stroke will participate in asynchronous on-line scheduled and ongoing discussion sessions from their home for the first 3-months following rehabilitation. The study extends earlier work that examined stroke, caregivers, and Friedemann's Framework of Systemic Organization by: 1)exploring the experience of caring (e.g., caregivers' challenges and victories) via on-line intervention and 2)testing Friedemann's theoretical framework and outcome variables (e.g., caregivers' perceived health/satisfaction with caring and care receipients' emergency visits, readmission, and nursing home placement rates). The experience of caring will be analyzed using Colaizzi's method and drawn to the theoretical framework. Outcome variables will be analyzed using repeated measures analysis of variance to test for differences at 4-points in time. Findings have the potential to (a) aid in understanding the experience of caring and (b) test the propositions underlying the theoretical framework.
