Stroke Care

High-Quality Stroke Care for Seniors in Edmonton

The effects of a stroke can vary significantly from individual to individual. However, some symptoms are common, including paralysis, weakness, difficulty communicating, and loss of coordination. Prompt care and selecting the right team following a stroke can significantly impact recovery. This is where Home Care Assistance of Edmonton comes in. 

Assistance with Daily Tasks During Stroke Recovery

After experiencing a stroke, seniors often have difficulty managing essential daily tasks such as:

  • Transferring from a chair or bed to standing
  • Preparing meals
  • Keeping track of new medications
  • Communicating
  • Getting to doctor or physical therapy appointments
  • Dressing, bathing, and grooming
  • Managing incontinence
  • Completing exercises as prescribed by a physical therapist

The stroke recovery caregivers at Edmonton Home Care Assistance are trained to assist with these and many other important tasks. We provide personalized non-medical support that boosts spirits, keeps clients motivated, and empowers seniors throughout the stroke recovery process. Our stroke care professionals encourage seniors to regain independence while also providing valuable assistance, monitoring, and observation to make home a safer and more comfortable place to return to. 

Facilitating Rehabilitation Is One of Our Primary Goals

Rehabilitation is often difficult for seniors when it is time to leave the hospital following a stroke. While some functioning returns quickly and easily, other changes take time, and additional help may be necessary to reduce the risk of setbacks or reoccurrence. Home Care Assistance in Edmonton offers stroke recovery care plans that are individualized to meet the exact needs of seniors throughout every stage of rehabilitation. Working with seniors, family members, and their medical teams, we encourage our clients to get involved in activities that help them enjoy a successful recovery. Our stroke caregivers supervise and offer support to ensure safety, and they also assist with housekeeping and other instrumental activities of daily living so seniors experience less fatigue and can focus on rehabilitation. Stroke care plans can be easily adapted as seniors regain their abilities or experience setbacks, making this personalized approach effective throughout every stage of recovery.
