While strokes can be scary and sudden, the good news is that the vast majority of people survive, and with proper in-home stroke care, 70 to 85% of seniors make a full recovery with little to no long-term disabilities. If your aging parent, spouse or loved one has recently suffered a stroke, it’s important to remember that one of the most crucial aspects of rehabilitation is managing post-stroke care at home. From setting medication reminders and assisting with in-home therapy, stroke recovery quickly becomes a full-time job – one that’s often best left in the hands of a professional 24/7 post-stroke caregiver from Home Care Assistance of Lehigh Valley.
When helping a senior heal from a stroke, it’s important to address all aspects of quality of life and well-being. At Home Care Assistance of Lehigh Valley, we believe that physical, mental, emotional and social health are all intertwined and that when all of those aspects of well-being are nurtured and cared for, that is when seniors begin to experience life to the fullest, despite their current health prognosis.
By exercising the care practices outlined in our exclusive and holistic Balanced Care Method, our 24/7 stroke caregivers are able to help your aging loved one rehabilitate all aspects of their health after suffering a stroke, lessening the likelihood of a secondary stroke. They do so by encouraging daily exercise or in-home therapies, managing nutrition and healthy eating, encouraging social activities, and promoting independence and dignified living.
Coping with an elderly adult’s stroke, sudden disability and increased dependence can be emotionally and physically taxing on family members.
