Recovering From A Stroke
Finding The Right Care
In the Uk there are 100,000 strokes every year which means they can occur every five minutes. When recovering from a stroke the person will need care for the initial 30 days and then some level of continual care may be required if there are lasting effects to the body.
The effects of a stroke are varied from person to person but we can help design a personalised care plan to meet your needs. Our carers will have worked with stroke patients who have suffered with all different kinds of strokes and been affected in different ways, giving your loved one the best care.
Home care is care that is provided in the place that means the most to them, their home. Recovering in your familiar surroundings can aid in making the process quicker. Home care does not have to be round the clock but instead help take the strain off your main caring duties. We can help with personal care, housekeeping, food shopping and similar tasks. However, if their medical needs are significant then live-in care is an option to consider.
Although some people recover quickly in the first 3 – 4 months some may need long term support. Stroke victims often need to go through therapy to learn how to speak or to walk which our carers can help and encourage their goals.
A Stroke can damage the victims mental health, often feeling depressed or anxious, cognitive impacts on their brain to process information, swallowing, visual and bladder control. Home care can help with physiotherapy exercises between their sessions with physiotherapist and emotional support, to reassure that their condition will improve and adapt to their needs.
Caring for someone who has had a stroke can be lonely and frustrating. It is not selfish to want to protect your emotional and physical wellbeing by reaching out and asking for help. Someone who has had a stroke can often seem as though they have had a change in personality but it is important to remember that as the recovery progresses they’ll often start to return to their old self.
