Stroke Home Care
Being the victim of a stroke can be a life-upsetting event and we understand the stress and strain that this can put on both you and your loved one. These types of incidents can have a physical and emotional toll that could be further upset by having to undertake additional changes within their life such as moving into a care home. That’s why we here at Arbour Companions and Care want to be able to offer another solution – care for stroke victims at home.
Being able to stay within your own home after falling victim to a stroke enables your loved one to be within their familiar surroundings, allowing them to increase the quality of their life during a very strenuous and difficult time as they start to recover.
At Arbour Companions and Care, we understand that dependent on the severity of the stroke, everyone’s needs are different. There are around 150,000 people in the UK that experience a stroke each year and it can occur at any age. Common symptoms of having a stroke can lead to weakness, numbness, loss of mobility (usually this occurs on one side of the body) as well as difficulty speaking. There are factors that can increase the risk of a stroke which include aspects such as diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity. We take into account all of your loved ones needs when matching them with a carer.
