   This research is based on purposive sampling method. The respondents of the study are fourteen stroke patients, six of them are females and the rest are males, aged 40 to 85 years old who are currently receiving occupational therapy intervention. This descriptive correlational design method has been used to determine the relationship of the respondents' level of motivation to their level of perception in the exercise benefits scale among stroke patients in private hospitals' rehabilitation centers in Cebu City. The research instruments in which the subjects were asked to answer has been designed using likert categorical scale which was developed to assess motivation in stroke survivors and the perception of the exercise benefits.

   Majority of the respondents were between 40 to 50, 61 to 70, and 71 to 80 years old. The numbers of female stroke patients who undergo rehabilitation services were higher compared to the male stroke patients with a percentage of 57.1% and 42.9% consecutively. A percentage of 64.28% underwent between 5 to 30 OT (Occupational Therapy) sessions while 14.29% underwent between 31 to 60 OT sessions. For those that underwent 61 to 90 OT sessions a rating of 7.14% with a frequency of only 1 while 14.29% underwent above 90 OT sessions. Majority or 85.7% of the respondents has positive perception while the remaining 14.3% has negative perception of the exercise benefits. There were twelve respondents with positive perception with a percentage of 85.7% while the remaining 14.3% has negative perception. There was a strong positive relationship between the perception of the exercise score and motivation score of the stroke patients in Cebu City private hospitals' rehabilitation centers. The p-value is 0.000 which is lesser than 0.05 level of significance. The null hypothesis is rejected. The relationship is found out to be significant. The perception of the benefits of exercise is significantly related to the level of motivation. Contingency coefficient revealed that the higher the age, the higher the motivation level and perception level of the exercise benefits. However, the relationships were negligible. A therapeutic program was designed to promote motivation for OT compliance during intervention in rehabilitation centers.

    The level of motivation of the stroke patients in the private rehabilitation centers in Cebu City is high and also they have a positive perception of the exercise benefits. There was a strong positive relationship between their perception of the exercise benefits and level of motivation in social, environmental, and personal factors.
