Stroke

Strokes require immediate medical attention and take both a physical and emotional toll. After suffering a stroke, getting back to normal and enjoying a level of independence is important and requires help from medical professionals like a speech therapist or physical therapist. A stroke survivor may experience partial paralysis which can make daily tasks difficult. As a result, survivors may have trouble adhering to stroke rehabilitation treatment plans without the guidance of healthcare professionals. The good news is that in-home stroke rehabilitation care can be incredibly successful for helping a stroke survivor improve their quality of life quickly.

 

In-Home Care for Stroke Rehabilitation

During a stroke, the patient’s brain is temporarily cut off from blood flow causing brain cells to die. This temporary shortage of blood flow results in a loss of control of some memory functions along with muscle mobility issues.

In the days and weeks after a stroke, the stroke patient may experience some of the following issues:

  • Partial or full paralysis on one side of the body
  • Difficulty speaking or complete loss of ability to speak
  • Muscle weakness in arms or legs
  • Partial or full paralysis in the face

These issues can be incredibly frustrating for stroke survivors as they take time and patience to correct. Stroke therapy can be accessed through a rehabilitation facility with additional therapy options delivered through at-home stroke care. If a loved one has suffered a stroke, professional in-home care for stroke patients from licensed healthcare professionals can make the difference between a full or partial stroke recovery. Our trained rehabilitation experts and nurses will perform an assessment, tailor a custom treatment plan to your loved one’s needs / goals, and work closely with the patient, their family, and their healthcare team to ensure a speedy and thoughtful recovery. With in-home care services, every stroke patient can access therapy in a comfort and familiar environment. Learn more about post stroke rehabilitation and other treatment resources.
