This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: To investigate the effects of caregiver-mediated exercises on outcome in terms of body function, activities and participation of the person with stroke, as well as its impact on mood and burden of their caregiver. The primary objective is to determine if caregiver-mediated exercises improve functional ability in adults after stroke in basic and extended activities of daily living (ADL), and to determine the effect on mood, burden and QoL of the caregiver. The secondary objective is to determine the effect of caregiver-mediated exercises on outcome measures of gait, motor impairment, QoL, mood, fatigue, adverse outcomes, upper limb function and length of stay or treatment period.
