How Our Home Health Aides Help Seniors in Richmond, VA and Nearby Areas with Post-Stroke Recovery Care

At Visiting Angels, our home health aides have the experienced needed to provide quality post-stroke recovery care for seniors in Richmond, VA and surrounding areas

After having a stroke, most aging adults have to deal with a number of physical and mental difficulties. Some of them include partial paralysis on one side of the face or body, temporary memory loss and some type of speech impairment. As nearly two-thirds of all stroke survivors end up with a permanent disability, you can see why promoting stroke recovery by any means possible is extremely important.

Before their stroke, you were probably able to take good care of your mom or dad. However, now your loved one will require high levels of care and assistance to be able to fully recover without sustaining permanent consequences. Visiting Angels can provide expert in-home care for your mom or dad and assist them until they restore their health and recover from their stroke.
