The purpose of this phenomenological study was to gain insight into the caregiver stress experience when assisting with activities of daily living (ADL) for a person with a stroke. Caregivers reported physical and emotional or psychological stressors related to providing ADL assistance during the occupation of caregiving and requested more support at home. OT practitioners are uniquely suited to address the support needs of caregivers and have the potential to make a positive impact on their lives.
