How a Caregiver Can Help With Post Stroke Rehabilitation
Each year, approximately 795,000 people suffer a stroke, with nearly three-quarters of all strokes occurring in people over the age of 65. Has your loved one suffered from a stroke recently? The recovery and rehabilitation process can be tough for your loved one and for the family member that is helping them during this time. 24 Hour Home Care caregivers assist individuals who are recovering from a stroke in a variety of ways. Here are the ways a caregiver can assist your loved one during their recovery period.
-Medication reminders. It can be overwhelming and confusing to be prescribed multiple medications that you will have to take at different times of the day, with different doses and that must be refilled at different times. Caregivers offer you and your loved one peace-of-mind and assist with medication reminders, including which dose to take and when.
-Physical therapy exercises. Rehabilitation is crucial in the early stages of stroke recovery. 24 Hour Home Care caregivers are given resources, such as our physical therapy video series that is available to them always, to prepare to help assist in the road to recovery. You can rest easy knowing your loved one is in good hands during their rehabilitation period.
-Transportation services. Your loved one may have follow up appointments with their doctor or at their local hospital. Our licensed and insured caregivers are properly trained to transport patients to and from their hospital visits. Your loved one will be in the best hands and this will allow you to be worry-free about their means of transportation.
