What is stroke care?

Every stroke is different and the after effects of suffering from a stroke are completely unique to each person. If you or a loved one have had a stroke it can present a number of temporary or long-term challenges.

With the assistance of a stroke carer who has been educated to understand your needs and challenges, you don’t need to face the after effects of a stroke alone. With the right help and support, life can return to normal or as close to normal as possible.

What are the benefits of stroke care?

Having a one-to-one stroke carer at home can help with many post-trauma challenges. A stroke carer can ensure your personal and care needs are met as well as assist you around the home and accompany you on trips out of the home.

After a stroke you may struggle to communicate with others, so a one-to-one live-in stroke carer can get to know your own unique needs and how best to communicate with you.

Personal assistance from an after-stroke care assistant throughout the day means you are able to continue to live at home and do the things you enjoy.

Daily activities such as cooking, light housework or visiting friends and family shouldn’t need to be considered a special request. You can rest assured that a stroke carer from our team can help you, accompanying and assisting you whenever you need it.

Each of our carers is also able to work with other healthcare professionals such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, dieticians and doctors to provide a holistic approach to care aimed at improving your strength, muscle tone, speech, mobility, and independence. Your carer will actively work with you daily to exercise, stretch and oversee other aspects of your rehabilitation plan.
