We investigated whether using ADLs as a means of treatment in the home environment for six weeks could improve cognition and visual perception in patients with stroke. Twenty-four patients were randomized to receive home-based ADL and hospital-based traditional rehabilitation. Our findings showed that there was a statistically significant improvement and small effect size in visual perception. No significant improvement was found in cognition, but small effect size was noticed.
