Annually, about 800,000 people experience a new or repeat stroke. On average, there is a stroke every 40 seconds. Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States, with a life lost every four minutes. Stroke is the number one cause of adult disability. Up to 80 percent of strokes can be prevented.

A stroke, or ‘brain attack’, can happen anytime to any person, especially elderly or seniors. When blood flows to an area of the brain ceases, cells are restricted to oxygen and begin to die. When brain cells are lost during a stroke, as are functions run by that area of the brain, which can include speech, muscle control, memory etc. The aftereffects of a stroke can be life changing for the victim and their family members.

Stroke Recovery – At Home Supportive Care

At home supportive care helps your Elderly or Senior loved one with stroke recovery. Depending on what side of the brain the stroke takes place, strokes can cause a combination of neurological disorders:

  • Mobility issues due to partial paralysis
  • Speech / language problems
  • Changes in behavior / temperament
  • Memory loss / Confusion
  • Vision loss

If the stroke occurs in the brain stem, it can result in the stroke patient becoming “locked-in”, unable to move or speak.

We know every person will have different needs and preferences. Depending on the severity of the stroke, your loved one may only need basic in home supportive care such as assistance with bathing and dressing. Since strokes can cause the person to become more inquisitive and impulsive, they may need safety supervision. In Home Supportive Care is customized to provide the stroke recovery your loved one needs.
