The main source of disability that prevents individuals from being independent in doing everyday activities is functional movement disorders caused by bodily weakness in stroke conditions. This study aims to find out the level of independence of post-stroke patients. Methods: This study employs a descriptive quantitative approach based on the level of independence, type of stroke, and the side of the brain that is affected by stroke patients in Jakarta. Physiotherapists served as the enumerators for the study, which lasted for two months. The data were collected by observing and interviewing patients using the Functional Independent Measure (FIM) instrument. Results: A total of 101 stroke patients, including 78 ischemic stroke patients and 23 hemorrhagic stroke patients, were included in this study. A total of 40 individuals have left hemispheric lesions, of which 35 have ischemic types and 5 have hemorrhagic types. The overall number of patients with right hemisphere lesions is 61; of these, 43 have ischemic types and 18 have hemorrhagic types. Hemorrhagic stroke has a level of independence of 4.16 (SD + 1.06), while the ischemic stroke has a level of independence of 4.69 (SD +0.80). Ischemic stroke patients have a higher total FIM score than hemorrhagic stroke patients. Conclusion: Patients with ischemic stroke have a better level of independence than those with hemorrhagic stroke. Keywords: Stroke; Functional Independence Measure; Ischemic; Hemorrhagic; hemisphere
