There were 19 out of 36 elderlies taken as respondents by purposive sampling. Independent variable was anti-stroke exercise and dependent variable was systolic blood pressure. This study analyzed by paired sample t-test. There was difference between pre- and post-test on systolic pressure (p=0.000). Anti-stroke exercise which consists of three phases: warming, core, and cooling, had influence to decrease blood pressure in elderly. Nurses may applied anti-stroke exercise as non-pharmacological therapies to decrease elderly's blood pressure with hypertension. Further research needs to explore more throughout develop the research design and expanding the samples.
