After experiencing a stroke, many seniors are anxious to return home and resume their normal lives. While leaving the hospital to enjoy the comforts of home can be exciting, it can also be scary when so many things have changed. Especially in the earliest stages of recovery, seniors often need additional support with personal care, following medical advice, mobility, and even communicating. This is where Home Care Assistance of Winnipeg, MB, comes in. Our professional stroke recovery caregivers provide personalized, reliable, and compassionate care in the comfort of home. With flexible scheduling and individualized care plans, we are there when you need us. This makes the stroke recovery process easier, setbacks less likely, and home a more comfortable place to return to.
Many factors can impact stroke recovery, including the severity of the stroke, how long the senior waited for medical attention, and his or her health before the stroke occurred. Just as no two strokes are the same, recovery plans must be individualized to optimize effectiveness. At Home Care Assistance Winnipeg, our personalized care plans are developed with input from the client, family members, medical professionals, and our trusted Care Managers. Each plan considers the goals of the client as well as routines, scheduling needs, and the needs of the family. Care plans can be easily adjusted when progress or setbacks occur, and services can be increased, decreased, or even discontinued at any time and without a fee.
Stroke recovery is often complicated by the many instructions, professionals, and appointments involved. From scheduling physical therapy visits to providing transportation to medical appointments, preparing special meals, offering support during prescribed exercises, and reminding seniors to take their medications, the stroke caregivers at Winnipeg Home Care Assistance are valuable allies throughout the recovery process. Our stroke caregivers are thoroughly trained professionals who empower seniors to retain their highest level of independence while ensuring their needs are met without delay and in a safe, respectful, and secure manner.
A stroke is not just difficult for the senior to manage. It can also be challenging for the family. Adult children often take on the role of family caregiver, managing medical appointments and providing support. This is both physically and mentally challenging, especially when the adult child is unprepared to take on such an important role. At Home Care Assistance in Winnipeg, our goal is to support seniors and their families throughout the stroke recovery process. Respite care and 24-hour assistance options give families a break from day-to-day duties and professional assistance with sometimes challenging tasks. This provides family members with peace of mind while attending to their own lives, all while knowing their loved ones are safe and cared for.
If your loved one has experienced a stroke, make the recovery process easier to manage with the help of Home Care Assistance. To schedule a complimentary, no obligation evaluation at home or in the hospital, simply give us a call at (204) 489-6000. One of our compassionate Care Managers would be happy to assist you.
