Moreover, it was observed functioning profile describing sensory function and structures related to movements preserved; good interpersonal interactions and facilities provided by services and policies. Conclusion. Preserved functions and structures related to movement and advantages in interpersonal interactions, public services and healthy policies could be used to guide therapy and to prevent rehospitalisation commonly observed in chronic stroke survivals.
