Before and after the intervention, evaluation was carried out and was made by using the following tests: Berg Balance Scale(BBS), Canadian Occupational Performance Measure(COPM), Functional Independence Measure(FIM). Results : Significant increases of mean score in BBS, COPM and FIM were observed in both groups(p<.01). The task-oriented activities group was statistically increase more than the conservative occupational therapy group in BBS and COPM at 3 months. However, FIM mean score showed no significant differences between the two groups(p>.05).
