After surviving a stroke, seniors must adjust to a new way of life. Sometimes, limitations are severe and permanent, and at other times changes are minor or only temporary. However, there is no magic timeline for stroke recovery, and the support seniors receive once they return home is often a key factor that influences the ability to recover and regain the highest level of functioning possible. At Home Care Assistance of Fort Worth, TX, our professional stroke caregivers specialize in providing non-medical support that makes recovery at home safer, easier, and more comfortable. Our team is well-equipped to understand the mental and physical changes that are common among stroke survivors and adapt care to meet the individual needs of each senior. Our stroke care process includes meeting with seniors and their family members to develop a personalized care plan that addresses individual needs and goals. The care plan is then closely monitored and frequently reviewed to ensure it remains effective and beneficial. As needs change, the care plan can be adapted to meet these needs. If there is an emergency, help is always available. Our approach to in-home stroke care enhances recovery, reduces setbacks, and increases opportunities for seniors to regain a higher level of independence.
Rehabilitation from a stroke is often challenging. The emotional process alone puts seniors at high risk of experiencing depression, anxiety, and restlessness. These emotions are often compounded when seniors are housebound and without essential companionship. Emotional health can play a part in increasing a senior’s risk of having a second stroke, so paying attention to it is important. The stroke caregivers at Fort Worth Home Care Assistance treat all seniors with empathy, respect, and compassion. Our caregivers are matched with clients based on personality traits, hobbies, and interests to encourage bonding and make the senior feel comfortable with the person who is entering their home. For many senior stroke survivors, the home care experience is enjoyable. Their caregiver becomes somewhat of an extension of their family and a close confidant they can depend on. This level of security often enhances emotional health and helps many seniors feel confident and empowered throughout their recovery.
If your aging loved one is ready to return home after surviving a stroke, give him or her every advantage for a full recovery.
