Caregiving for Stroke Victims in Encino

a-1 home care

The simple fact of the matter is that exercise can help your Elderly or Senior loved one prevent a recurrent stroke when complemented by good nutrition that is low in saturated fat, sodium, and cholesterol.  Stroke can create temporary or permanent damage to a person that affects their ability to carry on with daily life independently.  Motor movement and coordination can become impaired, thinking and memory issues may result, and speech/language issues can make it difficult to communicate.  Exercise and therapy right after a stroke occurs aims at helping the individual regain as much functionality to independently carry out activities of daily living without assistance, but the individual might require 24 hour living assistance for quite some time even when they’ve come home from rehabilitation.  Having someone around can help ensure safety from falls, assist with activities of daily living, and provide motivation to rigorously pursue daily exercises.  Check this article titled Exercises for a Stroke Victim for some ideas on daily exercises that your loved one can do that will work out different parts of your loved one’s body.

At A-1 Home Care, we provide Post Stroke Care services for Elderly and Senior individuals on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis.  We understand that it may difficult for you to put your life on hold in order to provide 24 hour living assistance for a loved one.
