A stroke is a serious life-threatening medical condition that happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and urgent treatment is essential. The sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is likely to happen.


After stroke care at home

The after-effects of a stroke can be more than just physical, they can be long term and life changing. Strokes can occur to people at all stages of life and can have a very sudden and devastating impact on all involved.

The person may have suffered discernible changes to speech, muscle control or swallowing, but the less obvious effects such as fatigue, memory loss, depression and difficulty communicating all take patience and constant encouragement to reassure and rehabilitate the individual.

Regaining independence is key to stroke recovery and there is nowhere better to achieve this than in the comfort of your own home. Being familiar with your surroundings goes a long way to increasing your confidence and reducing your anxiety whilst you try to master the skills which are crucial to your rehabilitation.

Our expert carers are trained in how to spot the early signs of a stroke, including Ischaemic, TIA (mini stroke) and Haemorrhagic conditions we will support a swift hospital discharge to allow you or your loved one to get home and start the path to rehabilitation as soon as possible.
