Abstract: Objective. To evaluate and compare the quality of life (QOL) of caregivers of children with cerebral palsy or stroke. Method. This is a prospective randomized study, conducted with 21 caregivers of children who had cerebral palsy (G1) or stroke (G2), attended in HC/ UNICAMP. To evaluate the caregivers' QOL was used the World Health Organization questionnaire, called WHOQOL-Bref. Results. Among the 21 interviewees, 15 were in G1 and analysis of the WHOQOL-Bref shows no statistically significant difference between groups when we examined the perception of QOL for different domains (physical, psychological, social and environmental), age, gender, education level and level of motor impairment of the child. However, caregivers of children with other ailments, besides the motor, had a poorer perception of QOL in all domains, with statistically significant difference was identified in the physical domain. Conclusion. The areas surveyed are directly connected and interfere with the development of children and the caregivers emerges as an instrument.
