Family centered empowerment model was administrated to the individual of experimental group for 3months and later the level of quality of life was measured in two groups at the beginning and the end of the study using SF-36 questionnaire. Data were analyzed using chi-square and nonparametric tests. Findings: The mean score obtained for the quality of life in control group was 41.71. The pair test analysis showed that using the family centered empowerment model caused an increase in mean level of quality of life (75.46) in experimental group and the difference between two groups was found to be significant, statically (p<0.01).
