162 patients with stroke (cerebrovascular accident) were investigated of some social problems. The patients were treated in two internal clinics or in a rehabilitation center for stroke-patients. The assessments were accomplished in 30 months after clinical treatment. The average of age was 69 years. The percentage of women was 61%. The majority of patients lives in own flats, 12% in a nursing home. The furniture of flats, was often not approximated for disabled persons. The care almost was undertaken through relatives. More institutional support could be helpful in few cases. Help was wished in according to conditions of flats, meals on wheels, programs for self-activities, references to nursing, technical helpings and transportation services. These investigations suggest that the families are an important factor in rehabilitation of stroke. They need social and psychological support. The attitude of family determinated essential the prognosis of rehabilitation.
