Stroke Recovery Care
A stroke can impact the life of your loved one in numerous ways. Its important to have the right care plan to make sure all your needs are met and questions are answered.
If someone you care about has suffered a stroke and is having to navigate the many challenges that can come as a result, know that you and they are not alone in your experience. Following cancer and heart disease, stroke is the third leading cause of death; over 85% of people, however, are able to live through a stroke. In most cases, only a short period of time is spent in the hospital or respite before the patient is discharged and given the ‘okay’ to return home for the rest of their recovery.
Particularly in the case of seniors, a stroke can have a notable impact upon the quality of life that they are able to lead, and also impacts their capacity to take part in their typical daily activities. Assistance from a proficient and well-practiced caregiver might become necessary if your loved one has gone through a stroke. At Retire-At-Home, we possess an understanding of the challenges and difficulties that come with caring for a loved one after a stroke.
Even the most simple everyday tasks can suddenly become intensely difficult to carry out, and it becomes easy to slip into feelings of despair and to feel overwhelmed when faced with the great amount of care that is needed following a stroke. Offering emergency monitoring at the hospital, help and support during at-home recovery, or just a friendly companion are all available through our experienced teams. We will provide individualized stroke care to meet the unique medical needs and personal preferences of the individual.
