Abstract

Quality of life is a global concept that emphasizes dimensions of health status including finance, housing,

and work. The quality of life of post-stroke sufferers can experience disturbances or obstacles due to physical

disabilities, cognition, psychological and social disorders. The purpose of this study was to determine the

effect of ACT interventions on changes in the quality of life of post-stroke patients at Aloe Saboe Hospital.

The sampling technique used was the purposive sampling technique. The number of samples studied was 60

respondents divided into the experimental group (ACT Therapy and health education) and the control group

variable is the quality of life of patients after stroke. Based on the results of the analysis, there is an effect of

ACT intervention on improving quality of life in post-stroke patients as evidenced by the results of t count

= -9.015, then the Significant value is 0,000. This shows that the value of p <0.05 then Ho is rejected, so

the research hypothesis is proven that there is an effect of ACT therapy on the quality of life of post-stroke

patients at Aloei Saboe Hospital, Gorontalo City.
