Stroke Caregivers Promote Independence for Seniors at Home

In the days and weeks following a stroke, it can be difficult for seniors to adjust to changes in their health, leaving them vulnerable to additional complications and injury. During this time, Home Care Assistance acts as an important part of your aging loved one’s support system. Our highly experienced caregivers encourage independence and empower seniors with the appropriate level of support. We assist with:

  • Getting dressed in the morning
  • Bathing or showering on a regular basis
  • Preparing healthy, well-balanced meals
  • Ambulation inside or out of the home
  • Encouraging seniors to participate in prescribed physical therapy exercises
  • Managing any temporary or permanent incontinence concerns
  • Reminding seniors to take medications as prescribed

Understanding the Unique Post-Stroke Care Needs of Elderly Adults

Experiencing a stroke leaves some seniors feeling isolated because of their temporary home-bound status. Home Care Assistance caregivers provide important companionship during this time, reducing instances of depression and providing seniors with a renewed purpose in life. Caregivers and care recipients are carefully matched based on needs, personality and other important traits, and this helps to foster a bond between the two that increases comfort and communication.
