Stroke Recovery Care
Experiencing a stroke can have many effects on your loved one. Having appropriate care in place is essential so that all questions and concerns are addressed, and every need is met.
Strokes are the third leading cause of death following cancer and heart disease; thankfully, however, over 85% of people, are able to make it through and survive a stroke. Having a loved-one suffer a stroke and supporting them as they come to accept and deal with the new challenges that may come as a result, can be emotionally draining and difficult, but you can find a sense of comfort in knowing that they are not alone in their struggles.
In the vast majority of cases, people find themselves in good enough shape to be discharged from the hospital and return to their home environments after only a small amount of time spent in the hospital or respite. Especially in the case of seniors, the occurrence of a stroke is powerful enough to meaningfully reduce quality of life, often in widespread and overarching ways that come to impact a person’s capacity to engage in the activities, behaviours, and tasks that make up their typical daily lives. In the event that someone you love has suffered a stroke, support and assistance from the hands and heart of a proficient, experienced, and qualified caregiver may become favourable or necessary.
At Retire-At-Home, we have cultivated a great deal of knowledge, understanding, and experience regarding how to manage the various challenges that can arise when providing care for someone after a stroke. We know how quickly things can become overwhelming and how difficult it can be to feel prepared and capable of navigating even the most mundane or routine tasks. Whether the circumstances be that your loved one is in need of emergency monitoring in the hospital setting, requires support and assistance with at-home recovery, or would simply benefit from the presence of kind-hearted and caring companion, you can always trust Retire-At-Home as a dependable source for personalized care that will successfully meet both the medical needs and personal preferences of your loved-one.
Personalized Care During the Rehabilitation Period
Individually designed and customized Stroke Recovery Care is available through Retire-At-Home that can provide support to your loved-one through the crucial period of rehabilitation that follows a stroke. Our carefully selected and experienced team of health care workers will collaborate with your existing medical care providers and will take on the role of providing support for every aspect of medical care involved.
Along with medical care, Retire-At-Home’s caregivers are also available to provide assistance with the performing of housekeeping tasks, cooking and food preparation, personal care, and errand running while also attending and offering support in areas such as mobility, walking, eating, and speaking. The care our caregivers provide is always underpinned by a deep commitment to providing meaningful support for your loved-ones through this period of time, and to helping them regain the basic skills they may have lost as a result of the stroke through treatment that is unwavering in its nature of respect.
