    The purpose of this article is to present the stroke situation as it relates to family functioning. Using the family as a theoretical construct, attention is directed to the typical reactive pattern of the family that experiences a stroke in one of its members. Variables likely to influence the impact of stroke on a family are identified. Factors that favor a positive adaptive family response to stroke are discussed. 1986 Association of Rehabilitation Nurses
