Worried About a Loved One Who Had a Stroke in Greater Augusta, GA, and are Unsure of What Kind of Home Health Care Can Help Them Return Home?

In Augusta, Evans, Martinez, and Surrounding Areas Families Trust the Home Health Care from the Experts at Visiting Angels

A stroke is a major health event and comes with major challenges for both the patient and their family. The road to recovery is long and looks different for every individual, but home health care can make a difference for every stroke survivor. At Visiting Angels of Augusta, we offer transitional care, companion care, and the expertise your loved one needs to encourage a better recovery.

What to Expect Post-Stroke

After a stroke, your loved one will need intense medical care; in the weeks and months following, they will maintain a high level of attention from their doctor, physical therapist, speech therapist, and other experts who aide in recovery. They will leave the hospital with extensive aftercare instructions. Adjusting to life back at home can be challenging, as your loved one’s home may be less comfortable or accessible because of their current health needs.

How Visiting Angels of Augusta Can Help

All these challenges can be met with the support of home health care providers. A caregiver provides dedicated, one-on-one assistance with any daily need. We will help your family identify ways to make the home environment safe and comfortable. We also offer transportation and mobility assistance, to make sure your loved one can get to every appointment that is scheduled. A home care provider can accompany your loved one to the appointment, take notes and share them with family members, and communicate any concerns that have come up at home.

About two thirds of stroke survivors experience physical disability. Your loved one may also experience partial paralysis, memory loss, or speech impairment. These kinds of health impacts are challenging, and companionship care has been proven to provide the social and emotional support your loved one needs.

Daily tasks our home care agency can assist with include:

·       Using a mobility assistance device

·       Grocery shopping, meal preparation, and feeding

·       Companionship and regular wellness checks

·       Transportation to the doctor, physical therapist, etc.

·       Medication reminders
