According to a fact sheet from the National Stroke Association, of the 750,000 Americans that suffer a stroke each year, 5-14% of them will have a recurrent stroke withing one year. Check out the rest of the fact sheet here. It also offers advice on how to better manage life after stroke at home. The main point will always be to follow doctor’s orders about diet, exercise, and weight loss – and to take any medication prescribed.
At A-1 Home Care, we know that it can be a scary time for a loved one who suffered a stroke and for the family when your loved one comes home from rehabilitation or the hospital. There may be a lot of uncertainty concerning how to move forward. Your loved one most likely will need living assistance for quite some time until they are able to fully handle tasks on their own again. For some, the extent of damage may be so great that the individual will have a lifelong disability that will require even more dedicated assistance.
A-1 Home Care provides compassionate and dedicated Post Stroke Care services on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis. Our post stroke caregivers can help your loved one follow any doctor or therapist orders, assist with personal care, mobility, healthy meal preparation, and exercise.
All of our Post Stroke caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.
