Background The predictors for failure of home discharge after post-acute inpatient stroke rehabilitation need investigation. Methods With this retrospective case-control study conducted in a stroke rehabilitation unit in one tertiary hospital, data of 297 eligible stroke patients regarding patient demographics, family information, disease and function were collected. The primary outcome was failure of home discharge. Results One hundred and eighteen of 297 stroke patients (mean age 63 years, 37% women) failed to discharge home, including 109 admitted to rehabilitation hospitals and 9 to long-term care facilities. An inverse trend existed between numbers of daughters and the risk of failure of home discharge: having three or more daughters significantly lowers the risks for poor discharge destination (adjusted odds ratio, 0.23, 95% confidence interval, 0.07–0.72; test for trend, p = 0.002). Conclusion Having more daughters independently predicts home discharge after post-acute inpatient stroke rehabilitation.
