Stroke & Rehab Home Care Services
Most stroke survivors and those recovering from other medical circumstances have the goal of returning to full activity and live independently at home. However, during the recovery process, there are a number of activities of daily living that they need someone to do for them or support to do themselves. In the case of stroke rehab, the brain is gradually rebuilding damaged synapses, which can cause mental fogginess or a sense of mild confusion. A little guided direction can help speed up the recovery process while keeping a loved one healthy and safe.
Stroke and Rehabilitations Common Challenges
A stroke and other medical circumstances can be extremely challenging to cope with and recover from; patients must simultaneously overcome physical, cognitive and emotional challenges and many report frustrations with the recovery process.
