Westfield Stroke Care Enhances Recovery at Home
The road to recovery after a stroke is a challenging one for both the stroke survivor as well as his or her family. Although physical, occupational, and speech therapy can help your elderly loved one recover, having a caregiver in the home who understands the post-stroke hurdles seniors must overcome will enhance your loved one’s recovery efforts. At Home Care Assistance of Westfield, NJ, our post-stroke caregivers go the extra step to help your loved one have a more efficient and comfortable recovery at home.
Senior Stroke Survivors Benefit from Custom Stroke Care Plans
Before in-home care services begin, an experienced Care Manager consults with the client, the client’s family, and the physician to create a care plan tailored to the client’s individual needs. With a custom care plan in place, caregivers can assist with in-home rehabilitation efforts that promote independence, help restore damaged motor skills, and prevent a second stroke. Custom post-stroke care plans might include any or all of the following:
- Cognitive and physical therapy exercises
- Assistance with bathing, personal grooming, and incontinence
- Mobility support and transfers from the bed or a wheelchair
- Transportation to follow-up appointments
- Medication pick-up and reminders
- Grocery shopping, cooking, and light housework
- Emotional support and promoting a positive environment
