This study reports on outcomes for 169 caregivers enrolled in the Michigan Stroke Transitions Trial (MISTT), an RCT of social work case management for stroke patients returning home. A mixed-model approach examined the mean change from 7- to 90-days post-discharge with group-by-time interactions for differences between treatment groups. Caregivers reported few life changes or depressive symptoms from caregiving. There was no significant change over time or treatment effects. Negative aspects of stroke caregiving may take longer to develop. Focused caregiver assessment at discharge and a better understanding of how caregiving develops over time may improve the type and timing of support.
