The goal of this pilot study was to compare the effectiveness of home and telephone social problem-solving partnerships on primary family caregiver outcomes and to determine whether certain caregiver and stroke survivor characteristics influenced these outcomes. Thirty primary family caregivers were assigned to either a home visit, telephone contact, or control group. A registered nurse trained caregivers in the intervention groups in a series of seven telephone calls or home visits during a 12-week period to use social problem-solving skills in managing caregiving problems. Primary family caregiver outcomes were compared before the intervention, during the intervention (at 2 and 5 weeks after discharge), and after the intervention (at 13 weeks after discharge). Compared to the home and control groups, the telephone group had a significant reduction in depression, more positive problem-solving skills, and greater caregiver preparedness during the intervention, and improved, but nonsignificant depression, problem-solving, and caregiver preparedness scores postintervention. Race, age, and education were significant for selected outcomes.
