Stroke aftercare doesn’t have to happen in unfamiliar surroundings. We’ve helped many families get back on their feet after a stroke while staying in the comfort of their family home. A stroke, or transient ischaemic attack (TIA), can have a life-changing impact on a person. But it doesn’t just impact the individual – it has effects on the entire family.
By providing nursing-led care at home, we’re helping families across the country to receive the support they need at home. With either round-the-clock care or visiting care when you need it most, our carers are experienced in assisting stroke patients at home, affected by large vessel thrombosis, embolic and haemorrhagic strokes, to name a few. Speak to us today to find out more about how we can support you with completely flexible and custom-made care plan.
A stroke is when poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding. They result in part of the brain not functioning properly. Signs and symptoms of a stroke may include an inability to move or feel on one side of the body.
Signs and symptoms often appear soon after the stroke has occurred. If symptoms last less than one or two hours it is known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or mini-stroke. A stroke may also be associated with a headache.
