Huntsville’s Top Choice for In-Home Stroke Care
Strokes are unexpected medical events. As a result, it is difficult to know what to expect after having one and what obstacles might be faced throughout recovery. These unknown factors often make returning home after a stroke challenging or even scary. Having the right level of support eases this burden. At Home Care Assistance of Huntsville, AL, our professional stroke caregivers provide one-on-one assistance to seniors during recovery and beyond. These passionate individuals are available anytime day or night or even 24 hours a day. As care needs change, the schedule can be easily adapted to ensure care continuously remains beneficial and appropriate. With our support, families find it easier to manage the demands stroke recovery often brings, and seniors confidently focus on regaining their optimum level of independence.
Our Flexible Stroke Care Plans Can Be Adjusted at Any Time
Following a stroke, the extent of disability seniors face is not always immediately obvious. Even when it is, care needs often change throughout recovery. Home Care Assistance Huntsville’s individualized stroke care plans effectively address these changing needs. We consult with family members, the senior, and medical professionals to develop an effective plan for providing non-medical assistance at home. As recovery progresses and care needs shift, the plan is reviewed and modified to always meet them.
Some things our stroke recovery care plans address include:
- Scheduling appointments with medical professionals and therapists
- Providing reliable transportation to appointments
- Assisting seniors with personal care to help them manage new limitations such as partial paralysis
- Assisting with communication when aphasia presents
- Supporting seniors with mobility when weak or unstable
- Providing medication reminders
- Communicating with family and medical professionals to prevent setbacks and re-hospitalizations
Stroke Caregivers Promote Emotional Wellbeing in Seniors
Along with changes in physical abilities, many seniors experience emotional symptoms following a stroke. These can include anxiety, grief, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. For many, feeling connected helps them overcome these challenges and maintain a more positive outlook. Huntsville Home Care Assistance utilizes a personalized matching service that pairs caregivers and care recipients based on personality traits, hobbies, likes and dislikes, scheduling preferences, and other important traits. This encourages relationship building and fosters a more positive home care experience that creates connections, healing, and comfort through every stage of recovery.
