Visiting Angels provides senior care at home in Broomfield, Northglenn and Westminster, CO that assists in recovering from stroke and learning to adjust to changed abilities
After experiencing and surviving a stroke, seniors will likely face many physical and mental challenges. Stroke can have a lasting impact on a survivor's memory, mobility, and speech. Common long-term effects of stroke include partial face and body paralysis, difficulty with fine motor skills, slurred speech and trouble with short-term memory. The severity of these outcomes can vary greatly. Your loved one's doctor and medical care team will be able to best explain what recovery looks like for your loved one's unique situation.
"Two-thirds of all senior stroke survivors end up with some level of disability"
Perhaps you were able to provide the assistance and care your parent needed before the stroke, but now their situation has changed. Your loved one may have significant limitations to their mobility and cognitive function and you will need professional support to best help them. Visiting Angels Broomfield can help by providing compassionate, professional stroke recovery care at home.
How Recovery Care at Home Helps Elderly Stroke Survivors in Broomfield and Surrounding Communities
"I have nothing but great things to say about Visiting Angels Westminster. They have provided several wonderful 'Angels' to help my sister after she suffered a major stroke in early 2019. She lives in a nursing home, and even thoughout COVID, they found ways to creatively 'visit' her (window visits, window chalk, Zoom calls, cards and letters). They have kept her spirits up and kept her company when our family (due to distance) could not visit. When I've asked my sister in the past what she thinks of her Angel, she can't speak due to the ventilator, but her eyes light up, and she says, 'I love her.'"
