[en] Two years post-stroke, we analysed the survivors’ LS by looking at its associations with their
QoL and their informal caregivers’ QoL and drawing from a national survey in Luxembourg
(LU) and a Braganc¸a district survey in Portugal (PT). Method: Face-to-face structured interviews at home. Findings: For LU, the 94 stroke survivors’ LS was linked with all survivors’ Newsqol (Newscstle Stroke-Specific Quality of Life)* dimensions, with strong links for feelings and sleep. No association was observed with their 62 caregivers’ Whoqol-bref domains. For PT, the 50 survivors’ LS was correlated with all Newsqol’ dimensions (except vision) with strong relations for mobility, self-care, feelings and sleep, and with all 46 caregivers’ Whoqol-bref domains (physical, psychological, environmental and social relationships). Discussion: Common associations exist with stronger links for PT. Survivors’ QoL is a predictor of LS which is a useful patient-centred marker for the practice of the psychologists who develop family interventions and counselling programmes.
