Abstract

Social support helps prevent and decrease the stressful situation of the family's experience in providing care to children with cerebral palsy. Thus, this study aims to determine the significant relationship between social support and the level of stress among parents of children with cerebral palsy. The study revealed that the majority of the parents with cerebral palsy children who had high stress levels had perceived low social support. Therefore, this study may provide a guideline to the health professional to deliver support to assist the best adaptation in facing the issues.
