Stroke literature has agreed that informal carers or family members play an important role in contributing to successful rehabilitation and supporting stroke survivors to return to community.  A complete understanding by the patient, family, and rehabilitation team of mutually derived goals, current capabilities, and safetyissues is perceived to assist in overcoming interpersonal barriers to rehabilitation and therefore should be integrated into the overall planning of rehabilitation (Duncan et al. 1998).  Involvement of the familyunit in rehabilitation strongly correlated with patient adherence totherapy, better understanding between patient and caregiverof achievable outcomes, and improved communication between patientand caregivers (Evans et al. 1987). Findings from a recent qualitative study by Galvin and colleagues (2009) also strengthen the perception on carers’ potential and suggested that carers’ role can be extended into delivery of therapy and that their involvement in this task would facilitate carry-over of treatment, improvement in handling skills and greater ability to cope with post-stroke problems on discharge. One suggestion to enable these has been that rehabilitation professionals may  develop strategies whereby patients and cares take full responsibility for the bulk of therapy; for instance, training of balance, strength and endurance, repetition of simple tasks, group therapy and fitness-related training. These are the basis for recommendation for home-based exercise following discharge from formal hospital-based rehabilitation. Continuing exercise at home with the assistance from carers have been shown to be effective in combating functional decline among stroke survivors at a later stage post-stroke.
