In-Home Support Services After A Stroke
According to the National Stroke Association, strokes affect millions of individuals every year and are the leading cause of adult disability. Strokes can lead to paralysis, speech impairment, vision loss, changes in behavior and memory problems.
Caring for a loved one who is recovering from a stroke can be stressful on family members. Depending on the severity of the stroke, your loved one may need help with everyday tasks such as personal hygiene, meal preparation and mobility.
“Some individuals who have suffered a stroke are severely impaired and require constant, if not round-the-clock, care,” said Adventist HealthCare Home Assistance Clinical Manager Sandra Pierre-Louis. “Our compassionate healthcare and support team can help ease the burden of care on you and your family members by providing in-home services.”
Adventist HealthCare Home Assistance offers the following high-quality healthcare and support services to ensure your loved one is safe and comfortable at home:
- Hygiene and toileting assistance
- Mobility assistance
- Meal planning and preparation
- Companionship services
- Medication management
- Vital sign checks
- Light housekeeping and laundry services
- Errand running
- Transportation to and from doctor’s appointments
Depending on your family’s level of need, in-home care can be provided on an hourly, 24-hour or live-in basis. Our well-trained and knowledgeable in-home caregivers can help prepare individuals and families for the road to recovery.
Managing life post-stroke can be a challenging task for everyone involved, but it does not have to overwhelm you or your family. In-home care for your loved one can allow you to have more time to manage other day-to-day responsibilities, including work demands and childcare commitments.
