Abstract

Perceptions of lifestyle satisfaction are an important component of quality of life and handicap measurements. Thirty- one adults with aphasia completed a questionnaire in which they rated their Lifestyle satisfaction and reported other demographic, health, communication, social contact and Vocational information. Forty-six per cent of the respondents reported general lifestyle satisfaction. Logistic regressions were estimated to differentiate the effects of the predictor variables on the likelihood of a positive lifestyle- satisfaction rating. A negative effect of time post-onset was demonstrated. The results are discussed in the context of previous reports of lifestyle satisfaction in the general stroke population.
