Purpose: This study is a descriptive correlational study to identify the mediating effect of resilience on depression and rehabilitation motivation. Methods: The study was conducted on 206 stroke patients that visited the D University Hospital in B City. Data was collected from July 1 to September 11, 2015. Data were collected for depression, rehabilitation motivation, and resilience. The data were analyzed by the t-test, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and hierarchical multiple regression using the SPSS/WIN 21.0 statistical program. Results: 33.7% of subjects showed beyond mild depression. The level of rehabilitation motivation was higher in male stroke patients, and when the level of education and monthly income was higher. Moreover the levels of rehabilitation motivation were significantly higher when stroke patients were participating in exercise continuously. Resilience was found to partially mediate the relationship between depression and rehabilitation motivation. Conclusion: The finding of this study demonstrates that intervention on resilience, in addition to direct intervention on depression, can improve rehabilitation motivation in stroke patients.
