How In-Home Supportive Services Help Seniors with Stroke Recovery Care

At Visiting Angels, our caregivers are trained to deliver personalized care to seniors who are recovering after a stroke

A stroke can lead to a number of physical and mental difficulties. Individuals who had a stroke can end up with partial paralysis on one side of the face or body and can suffer from temporary memory loss and speech impairment. Since almost two-thirds of stroke survivors end up with a permanent disability, it is obvious how important professional stroke recovery is.

You may have been able to provide most of the care your aging parent needed before they had a stroke, but now the situation has changed. They will likely need high level of care and in home supportive services in order to fully recover. Visiting Angels caregivers are trained to provide high-quality care to your mom or dad and help them recover from their stroke.

How In Home Supportive Services Help with Stroke Recovery

At Visiting Angels Silver Spring, we have the experience, knowledge, and resources to provide your family member with the expert care they need to successfully recover at home.

As a part of our in home supportive services we can provide assistance with:

  • bathing, grooming and dressing
  • toileting and incontinence care
  • transferring and positioning
  • meal preparation and feeding

Our caregivers are also trained to provide mobility assistance, medication reminders as well as transportation to therapies or follow-up appointments.

One-on-One Attention Makes All the Difference

Aside from providing in home supportive services, our professional caregivers will keep you up to date with your loved one’s condition and progress, while making sure they follow strict doctor’s recommendations. We will keep your loved one engaged in daily conversations so they can slowly restore their speech.

At assisted living facilities and rehabs, there is often just one aide responsible for caring for multiple residents. Your loved one may have to wait to get the help they need getting to the bathroom, taking showers, or addressing new symptoms or pain.

With a personal in-home caregiver, your loved one will have the help they need right away.
