Of 123 survivors of documented completed stroke from the Framingham Cohort, 119 received objective evaluations of functional status along with an equal number of controls matched for age and sex. Of the stroke survivors, 16 per cent were institutionalized, 31 per cent dependent in self-care, and 20 per cent dependent in mobility. In addition, 71 per cent had decreased vocational function, and 62 per cent decreased socialization outside the home. Each of these frequencies was significantly greater than the corresponding rate in the control group.
