 The purpose of this study was to clarify the characteristics of cognitive appraisal of stress and coping strategy of disability on stroke victims by activity of daily living and cognitive function which are very important assessment tools for care effectiveness and support planning at before and after the discharge. The subjects were divided 4 types by ADL and cognitive function. Each type had a different characteristic. [Independent-Good Cognitive Function] had the biggest increase of stress after the discharge, even though it had the greatest coping function. [Independent-Poor Cognitive Function] hardly recognized their situation because of poor cognition, easily expected recovery and tended to decrease activities. [Dependent-Good Cognitive Function] had the highest QOL, because they had improvement of ADL and increase activities by caregiver. On the other hand, they had frequent palliative coping and poor confrontive coping. [Dependent-Poor Cognitive Function] had the highest stress and was emotionally instable for long time. Support and care by professionals affected to raise their moral to confront hardship on the other side.
