|The central hypothesis is that FCC will facilitate the amelioration of the SN syndrome, improve functional outcome, empower family members as a care partner during inpatient rehabilitation, reduce caregiver stress, and increase the home return rate at IRF discharge.|
The study will go on for as long as my family member is staying in the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, and will take one additional week after he/she leaves the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation.
To be included in the study, I must meet all of the following requirements.
o I am 18 years old or older.
o I am functionally independent.
o I am able to follow instructions, understanding verbal or written English.
I will receive no payment for taking part in this study.
