Strokes have a major impact on disability globally. According to literature, stroke patients may find it difficult to resume activities and roles post stroke as well as experience limited community reintegration due to lack of services and knowledge within South Africa. The aim of the study was to explore and describe stroke patients’ experiences of community reintegration after receiving occupational therapy intervention. The study followed a qualitative research approach with an exploratory descriptive design. Purposive sampling was used to recruit participants.
