Level of significance kept at 5 %. Results: Results show that there is moderate negative correlation between FIM and DASS (r = -0.571, r = < 0.05) moderate positive correlation between FIM and CIQ (r = 0.535, r = 0.05) and moderate negative correlation between DASS and CIQ (r = -0.526,r = < 0.05) in subjects with post stroke hemiparesis. Conclusion: functional independence measures (FIM) is positively correlate with community integration (CIQ) and negatively correlate with depression anxiety (DASS) and depression anxiety (DASS) is negatively correlate with community integration (CIQ).
