Premier Stroke Care for Las Vegas Seniors
Surviving a stroke is an experience that comes with many mixed emotions. It’s undeniable that both your family and your aging loved one are happy for the positive outcome, however, in the aftermath, many will feel stressed, isolated and confused when considering the long recovery process that lies ahead. While family support is critical to a senior’s rehabilitation, professional assistance from a specialized stroke care provider such as Home Care Assistance of Las Vegas can enhance and promote a faster recovery period at home, while providing peace of mind to seniors and their families.
Professional Stroke Caregivers Promote Independence at Home
In the days and weeks following a stroke, it is easy for seniors to hurt themselves because the muscles are often weak and vulnerable. During this time, our stroke caregivers act as an important part of your loved one’s support system. Our caregivers encourage independence and empower their clients with the appropriate level of assistance and support that promotes independence. Some of the things our in-home caregivers can help with include:
- Personal care, dressing, grooming and bathing
- Preparing healthy, delicious and easy to eat meals that address dietary concerns and swallowing problems
- Encouraging seniors to participate in prescribed physical therapy exercises
- Managing any temporary or permanent incontinence concerns
- Reminding seniors to take medications as prescribed
- 24/7 monitoring and fall prevention
- Transportation to medical appointments
Companionship Care for Senior Stroke Survivors
Experiencing a stroke leaves some seniors feeling isolated because of their temporary homebound status. Home Care Assistance caregivers provide important companionship during this time, reducing instances of depression and providing seniors with a renewed purpose in life. Caregivers and care recipients are carefully matched based on needs, personality and other important traits. This personalized matching process helps to foster a bond between the two that increases comfort and communication.
