The study used a descriptive type of research. Using convenience sampling technique, 50 respondents who are patients’ relatives were chosen from selected ICUs in Cavite. The researcher-made questionnaire was utilized for the data gathering. Frequency, mean, t-test and f-test were used in data analysis. The study concluded that, majority of the respondents were 18-30 years old, female, single, reached college, unemployed, and has equal number of respondents who were immediate family and relatives/significant others. The perception of patients' relatives on nurses as social support revealed that the respondents agreed to the level of social support given by nurses and that the respondents can feel the kind of support that the nurse is giving them. The perception of patients' relatives on nurses as social support does not vary when they were grouped according to their profile.
