Abstract

Purpose: The objective of this study was to analyse the impact of the natural restorative environment on the attention and mood of post-stroke clients.

Methods: A quasi-experimental design was followed, with pre- and post-tests on a control group. Purposive sampling procedure was used to select 76 post-stroke clients – 38 each for the treatment group and the control group. The treatment group received natural restorative environment intervention, twice a day for three days, while the control group was managed in accordance with the medical protocol. Before and after the intervention, clients in both groups were assessed for attention and mood.

Results: Increasing level of attention and mood was found in the intervention group, verified by p-value= 0.000.

Conclusion: Exposure to the natural restorative environment could increase the attention and improve the mood of post-stroke clients. The natural restorative environment helps in restoring the ability to focus and creates a positive mood.
