This report explores factors associated with discharge destination following stroke rehabilitation in participating inpatient rehabilitation facilities across Canada. Findings suggest that a number of factors are associated with an increased likelihood of being discharged home, including higher motor function at admission, living with a spouse or family member prior to the stroke, younger age, higher cognitive function at admission, shorter time to admission to rehabilitation following stroke onset, and sex.

In contrast to some published studies, facility type (specialty versus general) was not significantly associated with likelihood of being discharged home. Results may assist health care managers and planners with service planning and resource allocation based on the ability to predict discharge destination from client characteristics at time of admission.
