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. Our staff have had many years of caring for those individuals who have had strokes and we are a business that ensures that all our staff are constantly learning new ways and developing their understanding of strokes with new research and practices that are being developed by the scientific community.
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.
By choosing Arbour Care, we match you with a carer that understands your needs after experiencing a stroke. If you have any questions about the services that we provide or any of the activities that we carry out then please get in contact with a member of our team today. After having a stroke, survivors can often be left with disabilities that affect their everyday lifestyle, which is where our carers can help. We are able to help in a variety of ways including the following:
When it comes to a high-quality care, we understand that it’s more than just medical support, that we all have the need for companionship. Our carers are friendly, professional and can provide emotional support which in turn can lead to long lasting friendships. Stroke home care shouldn’t be something playing on your mind. We understand that this is a difficult decision, we pride ourselves on our levels of care.

We help people to live the life that they choose – and you will very much design your own service and stay in charge of your care.

Our services are all "managed", i.e. we supervise each contract, quality assure our carers' work and keep accurate records of what we would be doing to support our clients.
