Objective: It is so important to evaluate the effects of symptoms caused by stroke on activities of daily living. The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation of cognitive status and independence in activities of daily living (ADL) after stroke.
Materials & Methods: This descriptive-analytical and cross-sectional study was done on 25 stroke clients whom were selected from 3 hospitals and one rehabilitation centre by simple sampling method and from available society according to inclusion criterias and assessed through Barthel index (independence index) and LOTCA (cognitive assessment). Then the correlation of cognitive and activities of daily living performance was determined by correlation and regression statistical analysis.
Results: No relation was found between general cognitive function (total score of LOTCA) and individual independence (total score of BI) (P=0.087). Although some areas from LOTCA were correlated to Barthel index.
Conclusion: Although the lake of correlation between BI and LOTCA to some extent is caused by low intensity of cognitive impairment in sample size. It suggests that, BI just proceeds to independency in ADL. It has no emphasize on activity analysis. Therefore it is needed to use ADL assessments which stress on activity analysis for evaluating ADL performance in stroke patients.
