Specialist care after a Stroke
We believe that everyone deserves to receive high-quality care that meets their unique needs. That’s why we offer specialist care in Romford. Our experienced team of carers is trained to provide care of a variety of complex care needs or specialist conditions, including care after a stroke. Read on to learn more about how our specialist care services can benefit you or your family during stroke recovery.
What is specialist care?
When it comes to care, there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Our specialist care service is designed to support a person’s unique needs, desires, and requirements. We offer specialist care on either a short-term or long-term basis. For example, some people may require temporary specialised assistance when recovering from an accident while others may need long-term help to manage a chronic illness. Regardless of the length of time required, having complex needs should not prevent you from remaining in the place you feel most safe and comfortable: your home.
Our specialist care team
Our team of carers can help with a range of specialist conditions, including dementia care, mental health challenges, paraplegia, and stroke recovery. Thanks to our wraparound service, we are able to coordinate with a wider healthcare team to establish continuity of care and ensure that the best standard of care is always provided. Finally, we provide double-handed care which means that two or more carers are always on hand to support you or your loved one on your journey to better health and wellbeing.
Recovery after a stroke
Experiencing a stroke can have a physical, psychological, and cognitive impact on a person. During the rehabilitation process, extra support may be necessary to help a person regain their independence and recover as quickly as possible. We encourage those we care for to actively participate in their rehabilitation process. With our specialist care service, our dedicated carers will work with you to set your recovery goals and support you on your healing journey.
How can we provide support?
Following a stroke, physical changes are to be expected. Many people may struggle with coordination, balance, and muscle weakness. Our carers can assist with physiotherapy by encouraging simple exercises around the home. They can also help with household tasks such as preparing meals, doing the ironing, and washing up.
In addition, physical difficulties and visual problems may impair a person’s ability to drive or get around. Our carers are here to get you to wherever you need to be safely and on time – whether that be to appointments or social events. We can also help with personal care, such as going to the toilet or getting dressed, which may be difficult to do independently following a stroke.
As well, our carers can provide emotional support and ultimately, promote overall well-being. Depression and anxiety are two common psychological problems people may experience after having a stroke. With the companionship of a carer, it’s possible to help ease the emotional distress that may follow, combat feelings of loneliness, and rediscover the joy of living.
