The National Stroke Association reports that during a year’s time, approximately 800,000 new or recurrent strokes happen.
Strokes can be especially scary, as there is the potential that it will have a lasting impact. When someone suffers a stroke, the blood flow to parts of the brain is restricted, essentially starving it of oxygen. As a result, it can have lasting effects on one’s memory and muscle control.
The worst part?
It is said that 80% of strokes could have been prevented!
Since each case differs, it can be tough for you to know exactly how to care for your loved one and get them the proper stroke care they need. Luckily, you won’t need to deal with this on your own anymore. A Life Care Manager can help!
Access to the right services.
A home care assessment helps you understand the specific needs and preferences of the person with heart disease or a stroke. The Life Care Manager then identifies the best stroke care options, assisting the senior adult and family members to choose and access community services, and ensuring the best possible quality of life in the comfort of their own home.
Independence and enrichment.
No matter how one may be compromised in their ability to function independently, we believe in providing the necessary stroke care support to maximize independence and empowerment for all of our clients. Our geriatric care managers balance attending to not only physical care needs, but emotional, social, and cognitive needs as well, achieving the greatest possible enrichment and fulfillment.
Support for the entire family.
Caring for a dependent adult presents challenges to the entire family. Having a professional partner can provide the family with an objective guide, someone who responds to needs as they arise, as well as anticipates and helps plan for the future. The Life Care Manager is your advocate.
