After an aging loved one has suffered a stroke, it’s not easy to comprehend what’s happened. Families often find it difficult to face the reality of the stroke and the subsequent effects it can have on the senior’s life. The impact of a stroke can range from not being able to perform simple daily tasks to extensive damage such as cognitive impairment, paralysis and aphasia. At Home Care Assistance of Prescott, we understand the numerous limitations stroke survivors face, and provide the professional care, monitoring and support seniors need to overcome these challenges and continue living in the comfort of home. With flexible hourly and live-in care options, our stroke caregivers can assist your loved one no matter what level of care is needed.
Although you may feel surrounded by chaos as you look to coordinate care for a loved one, know that you are not alone. The experienced and dedicated Care Managers at Home Care Assistance of Prescott are here to help. They take the time to listen, learn and understand the needs of the client and their family, creating a detailed stroke care and recovery plan that can include help with any or all of the following:
All stroke caregivers are employees, bonded, licensed and insured, and must attend our Home Care Assistance University, a unique learning platform which furthers their knowledge in care for older adults and how to attend to the complex needs of elderly stroke survivors. They become educated in safe transferring practices, nutritious meal preparation and how to identify warning signs of a second stroke to prevent recurrence. Caregivers are also required to take CareNotes which are available to the family, the senior’s doctor and physical therapists, helping to ensure the appropriate level of care is provided to promote recovery and rehabilitation efforts.
The road to recovery following a stroke is filled with challenges, for both the senior stroke survivor and their family. However, with the support of Home Care Prescott, you can ensure that you’re aging parent, grandparent or loved one receives the care they need and deserve, while you enjoy peace of mind knowing they are in professional and caring hands.
