Stroke Care in Gatineau, OTT
Stroke Recovery Care
The Need for Care after a Stroke
Suffering a stroke can affect your loved one in many ways. It’s critical to have the right care in place to ensure all your questions are answered and needs are met.
If someone you love has had a stroke and is now faced with the complications that can result, find comfort in knowing that they are not alone and over 85% of people are able to survive a stroke. Home care can certainly help with the recovery!
In the majority of cases people are discharged and can return home for their recovery after only a small amount of time spent in the hospital or respite. Particularly for seniors, a stroke can have a significant impact on reducing quality of life, and often alters a person’s ability to participate in typical activities of their daily lives in a meaningful way.
If your loved one has suffered a stroke, help from a proficient and experienced caregiver may be necessary. It is normal to feel overwhelmed or underprepared for the amount of care that is required, and sometimes even normal, everyday tasks can suddenly seem unmanageable. Whether your loved one requires emergency monitoring at the hospital, assistance during recovery at home, or just friendly companionship, you can count on Affinity Health to provide care that is personalized to the personal medical needs and preferences of each individual.
