Individuals with mild stroke, their caregivers, and healthcare professionals identified the cognitive, psychosocial, and physical impairments resulting from mild stroke. These deficits are not identified through diagnosis and thus not addressed by practitioners, contributing to the practice of discharging individuals home from acute care without services. This research shows that OTs must identify and treat deficits of individuals with mild stroke along the continuum of care.
