OBJECTIVE:

: to investigate the association between the domains of health-related quality of life of family caregivers and sociodemographic characteristics of individuals with stroke sequelae.

METHOD:

: descriptive, cross-sectional, quantitative research, conducted with 136 family caregivers of individuals with stroke sequelae by means of home interviews from April to June 2013.

RESULTS:

: we found that caregivers of individuals aged under 65 years, married, with 10 to 12 years of formal education, presented higher scores, respectively, in the domains 'Social aspects', 'Emotional aspects', and 'Mental health'. However, caregivers of patients with higher degree of disability obtained lower score in the 'Mental Health' domain.

CONCLUSION:

: the results foster reflection on the need of including the family caregivers of individuals with stroke sequelae in the planning of care provided by health professionals.
