Coral Gables Stroke Care Delivered with the Utmost Dignity & Respect
When a senior has a stroke, the recovery period may be difficult to manage. It takes time to relearn how to function and adapt the body and mind to this new way of life. Throughout recovery, the right level of support and assistance is imperative to ensuring safety while encouraging independence. At Home Care Assistance of Coral Gables, FL, we understand the care needs of seniors recovering from a stroke. Our professional stroke caregivers work with seniors patiently to ensure a smooth transition home and a more positive recovery period while treating them with the highest level of dignity and respect.
Stroke Caregivers Simplify Day-to-Day Living
The physical aftereffects of a stroke often include mobility limitations, difficulty swallowing or speaking, and reduced usage of one or both hands. Though medical innovations have made it possible to overcome these obstacles and fully recover from a stroke, having the right support in place helps seniors recognize these limitations, avoid trying to do too much, and, in many cases, recover faster.
At Home Care Assistance Coral Gables, our caregivers assist stroke survivors with many day-to-day tasks that are impacted by these limitations. Services in our stroke care plans can include:
- Assistance with mobility, personal care, and toileting
- Encouragement to safely complete physical therapy activities
- Safe and reliable transportation to and from medical appointments
- Help with general housekeeping and cooking
Our Stroke Care Helps Seniors Meet Their Nutritional Needs
Sometimes, a special diet is required following a stroke. Eating the right foods can help seniors recover, and preparing and serving meals properly may be necessary for safety reasons as well. Coral Gables Home Care Assistance’s stroke caregivers receive culinary and nutritional training through our Home Care Assistance University, which provides them with the tools they need to support a medically prescribed diet and ensure safety at mealtimes.
Stroke survivors deserve high-quality home care that makes recovery easier and more comfortable. With Home Care Assistance in Coral Gables on your elderly loved one’s side, providing the best stroke care right at home is always possible.
