Tailored Care for Stroke Recovery
The prognosis following a stroke or neurological disorder depends on several factors, including the type, the part of the brain damaged, how quickly the person received treatment and the person's prior level of functioning. No matter what stage of recovery a stroke survivor is in, providing one-to-one attention from an expertly trained caregiver is an excellent way to promote recovery. Whether in the home, hospital or rehabilitation facility, our caregivers can provide the support your loved one needs to not only improve, but thrive.
Support to Maintain Compliance with Therapy
The support and guidance that stroke survivors receive from their physical, occupational and/or speech therapist is invaluable; compliance with the recommended exercises and consistency in practice is pivotal to the recovery process. Our caregivers often work with the client's therapist team to ensure that the stroke survivor is actively engaging in the types of exercises the therapists recommend to promote recovery. In addition, our caregivers provide the transportation and accompaniment to neurologists and other physician appointments to ensure proper follow-up.
Our Caregivers Promote Independence while Providing Support
The road to recovery can be challenging for stroke survivors. Receiving support from a caregiver or a loved one can help with physical needs and memory exercises such as keeping an activity notebook can improve cognitive function. Home Care Assistance caregivers understand that while support with daily activities is critical in ensuring the comfort and safety of stroke survivors, it is equally important to promote compliance with physical therapy exercises and gradual independence in completing daily activities to facilitate physical recovery; even small accomplishments can provide a big mental boost and propel stroke survivors toward their long-term goals.
