           Quasi-experimental research with one group measuring results before and after the experiment. The objective is to study the results of stroke prevention program in the elderly on blood pressure and blood lipids. The sample consisted of 34 elderly people diagnosed with high blood pressure in a sub-district health promotion hospital. The sample was selected according to the specified characteristics using simple random sampling. A questionnaire was used as a tool to collect general information and stroke prevention behaviors. The following areas: diet, exercise, and medication were examined for validity and reliability. Cronbrach's alpha coefficient was 0.92, and 0.88, 0.73, and 0.73, respectively. The results of the study found that after using the program, the sample group had a higher mean total score for stroke prevention behavior than before using the program, at a statistical significance of .05. And it was found that the sample group's mean systolic and diastolic blood pressure and LDL blood lipid levels decreased at a statistical significance of .05. Therefore, the program should be used as a guideline for behavioral modification to prevent stroke and be applied to populations with chronic diseases that have similar characteristics.
