ABSTRACT
The main goal of this study was to evaluate, using an experimentation case study and a phenomenological study, if there had been any influence by using of a home rehabilitation program for people that had had a stroke and its importance for the family\caregiver. If so, it was also our goal to know that influence with detail, using twelve variables. After the enforcement of the program, it was noticed an improvement in several variables, showing how important this program was for the population in specifically and for the family\caregiver's.
