Stroke Care

Professional Central Coast Stroke Care Enables Recovery at Home

If you or your senior loved one has had a stroke, you understand how quickly your life can change. The normal everyday tasks of life fall by the wayside, and families are suddenly focused on how to make sure their loved one receives the care he or she needs right away. No matter how much they want to help, family members are usually unprepared for the unique challenges involved in caring for a person who’s had a stroke. A stroke care worker needs specific training, expertise, and experience to provide the specialised level of care that’s required. Fortunately, families have a trusted resource they can turn to during this difficult time. The highly trained, compassionate carers at Home Care Assistance of Central Coast, NSW, can offer families much-needed peace of mind. Our experienced carers know exactly what’s required to provide the highest level of stroke care right in the comfort of your loved one’s home.

Experienced Stroke Care Workers Provide Comprehensive Care

The highly trained, dedicated carers from Central Coast Home Care Assistance focus on the whole individual during recovery. They work to enhance every part of your loved one’s health, including physical, mental, social, and emotional components. This integrated approach is especially important for seniors who’ve had strokes because recovery can often be a slow, exasperating process that leads to depression, anxiety, and feelings of futility.

Each of our stroke carers is thoroughly trained in our Balanced Care Method, a holistic system of care designed to address every aspect of your loved one’s wellbeing. In addition to attending to our client’s physical needs, our care workers support overall health by providing social engagement and companionship, promoting exercise and social activity, and inspiring seniors to embrace independence as their recovery progresses.

With the Balanced Care Method, Home Care Assistance’s carers:

  • Assist with physical therapy – Our carers communicate with the senior’s medical team to help him or her relearn physical skills. Care workers assist with physical therapy, making sure the senior performs the therapy safely and according to physician’s instructions.
  • Help with daily activities while promoting independence – Carers treat seniors with the utmost dignity and continually encourage independence as they assist with normal everyday tasks such as dressing, bathing, preparing nutritious meals, and light housekeeping.
  • Provide social engagement and companionship – We carefully match our clients and carers by common interests and similar personality traits. Many of our clients and care workers develop genuine long-term friendships.
  • Offer compassion and constant encouragement – Stroke survivors often experience emotional side effects during their recovery. Frustration, impatience, anger, apathy, and depression are common reactions, and our carers continually offer expressions of encouragement and support that can be crucial to a senior’s emotional wellbeing.

Customised Caregiving Plans Suit Your Loved One’s Needs Best

Strokes vary widely in severity, so some seniors need only a minimal amount of assistance for a short time as they recover. However, others may require around-the-clock care for a longer period. Home Care Assistance in Central Coast offers flexible hourly and live-in stroke care plans that allow seniors and their families to choose the level of care that best fits their needs. We will work with you to create a customised plan that’s just right for your loved one’s needs. Whether your loved one needs assistance a few hours a day, a few days a week, or 24/7, we can be your trusted partner in making sure your loved one is able to recover safely and comfortably at home.
