A stroke will occur every five minutes in the UK alone, equalling to over 100,000 strokes every single year. Whilst recovering from a stroke, your loved one will need temporary care and support - it may be that they need more care even after the initial recovery stage if there have been lasting effects on the body.
Some elements of care and support your loved one will need whilst recovering from a stroke are:
Medication prompts and delivery
Help with mobility
Cooking and cleaning
Looking after pets
Going shopping and picking up medication
There are different options to stroke recovery care, however we want to focus on care at home, specifically Live-in Care.
Most people would choose to stay in the comfort of their own home when recovering from a stroke. Being in familiar surroundings, keeping routines, and seeing loved ones as they wish can help keep moods high whilst recovering. Having a Live-in Carer with you ensure continuity of care, someone there with you day and night, and a familiar face of a Carer who becomes a companion and a friend.
A Live-in Carer will work with your doctor or nurse, and any other specialist helping you to recover, to ensure advice is followed and your loved one is taking the right steps to recovering from a stroke.
We are here to help you choose the right care for your loved one - call our team today on 01264 319 399 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about stroke recovery care at home.
