Identifying factors early in the rehabilitation process that predict the inability to return home independently after stroke may better inform treatment decisions. Therefore, we performed a secondary analysis to examine demographic, medical, and cognitive factors that might predict nonresponse during inpatient rehabilitation. Using a backward stepwise logistic regression, we found that the variables most strongly correlated with dependence were cognitive impairment and motor impairment.
