Stroke Recovery Care at Home for Seniors in Raleigh, NC and Surrounding Areas
During recovery, people who have had a stroke often have to deal with a number of physical and mental challenges, such as being partially paralyzed, having trouble speaking and losing their memories. It is thought that up to two-thirds of all people who have a stroke end up with a permanent disability. Because of this, when an elderly loved one has a stroke, it's important to give them enough care and support and look for ways to speed up their recovery in any way possible.
But caring for a loved one who is healthy and well and caring for someone who is recovering from a stroke are two very different things. If your loved one has just had a stroke, it goes without saying that you will need all the help you can get. The good news is that at Visiting Angels of Raleigh, we offer in-home stroke recovery care for elderly and disabled adults in Raleigh, Cary, Wake Forest, Fuquay-Varina, and surrounding areas in Wake County, NC. Your loved one can be cared for by our experienced and dedicated caregivers so recovering can be a little bit easier.
How Do Seniors Benefit from Stroke Recovery Care at Home?
At Visiting Angels of Raleigh, we have helped seniors throughout Wake County and the Greater Raleigh area recover from strokes for many years. By giving your loved one the care they need at home, a dedicated, trained caregiver from our team can help them get better and keep them from having a second stroke, which is a significant risk for seniors who are already recovering from a stroke.
If your loved one's speech has been impacted after having a stroke, our caregivers will talk to them every day to help restore their ability to speak. If your loved one's physical or occupational therapists recommend other things to do, like folding laundry, buttoning clothes or doing light exercises, our home care providers can also encourage them to do these tasks. With the help of our stroke recovery care services, your loved one can get better at home quickly, safely and in comfort.
Some of the ways our caregivers can help your loved one recover include:
- Assisting with personal care, such as bathing, getting dressed, grooming, oral care, toileting and more
- Mobility assistance
- Transferring and positioning
- Planning and preparing meals
- Feeding assistance
- Medication and fluid reminders
- Transportation to scheduled appointments and therapy sessions
- Monitoring of their current condition and reporting and changes immediately
- And more
Best of all, our care plans are fully personalized. Unlike other local home care agencies in the Greater Raleigh area, we believe every seniors deserves the care they truly need to make aging in place a positive experience. That means when providing stroke recovery care, we will only include the home care services your loved one needs in order to make recovering from a stroke easier and less stressful. We will also work with your loved one's schedule so they can continue enjoying their everyday routine.
With in-home stroke recovery care from Visiting Angels of Raleigh, you can have peace of mind knowing your loved one is in capable and caring hands.
