Stroke Care

Our Stoke Care Package is for individuals who have experienced a stroke, often referred to as stroke care or post-stroke care, involve a comprehensive approach to support their recovery, rehabilitation, and daily living needs. Our Stroke Care Package at home aims to enhance the individual’s quality of life, independence, and overall well-being.

Here are key components of our Stroke Care Package:

Dedicated Personal Care Assistants:

Our team of Specialist Personal Care Assistant have received training in Stroke on how best to support and care for individuals who had experienced a Stroke, including techniques for safe transfers and positioning.

Personalise Stroke Care Plan:  

The process typically begins with a thorough assessment of the individual’s mental health needs carried out by one of our Area Community Managers. A Person-Centred Care Plan is then developed, which outlines specific goals, interventions, and the frequency of care visits.

Activities of Daily Living (ADL) Assistance:

Stroke can result in physical and cognitive impairments that make it challenging to perform daily activities such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and eating. Our Personal Care Assistants can assist with these tasks to promote independence and maintain hygiene.

Medicaion Management:

Many stroke survivors need to take medications regularly to prevent further strokes or manage related conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes. Homecare providers can assist with medication management, ensuring that medications are taken as prescribed.

Rehabillitation and Therapy:

Stroke survivors often require physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy to regain lost skills and improve their quality of life. We can facilitate these therapy sessions at home, helping the individual regain mobility, strength, and communication skills.

Mobility Assistance:

Stroke survivors may have difficulty with mobility, including walking or transferring from bed to chair. We can assist with mobility aids, exercises, and techniques to improve movement and prevent falls.

 Nutritional Support:

Proper nutrition is crucial for stroke recovery. Homecare providers can help plan and prepare balanced meals, ensure adequate hydration, and monitor dietary restrictions if necessary.

Monitoring Vital Signs:

Regular monitoring of vital signs like blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen levels is essential for stroke survivors, especially if they have underlying health conditions. Our Specialist Personal Care Assistant can track and report any significant changes.

Emotional Support:

Stroke survivors may experience emotional challenges such as depression, anxiety, or mood swings. We can offer emotional support and encourage engagement in social activities.

Coordination with Healthcare Team:

We will work closely with the individual’s healthcare team, including doctors, therapists, and specialists. We will document and relay important information about the individual’s progress and any concerns.

Safety Assessment:

We will assess the individual home environment regularly for potential hazards and make recommendations to enhance safety, such as installing handrails or removing tripping hazards.

They should be able to tailor their services to meet the specific needs of the individual and work in collaboration with the individual’s healthcare team to achieve the best possible outcomes for stroke recovery and rehabilitation.
