After Stroke Live In Care

The after-effects of a stroke can be more than just physical issues, and they can also be more long-term and life-changing. Strokes can occur to all people leading to a very sudden and devastating impact on all involved.

Strokes can have a detrimental effect on physical functions such as mobility, swallowing, continence and vision.
Other tasks like constant fatigue, concentration, memory loss, speech or even emotional effects such as depression, anxiety, personality changes, and difficulty communicating all take patience and continuous encouragement to reassure and rehabilitate the individual.

Rehabilitation Care At Home

Regaining independence is the primary key to stroke recovery, and there is nowhere better to achieve this than in the comfort of your own home with the assistance of family or a live in carer. Being familiar with your surroundings goes a long way to increasing your confidence and reducing your anxiety whilst trying to master the skills crucial to your rehabilitation.

What is a stroke?

A stroke is an attack on the brain that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. The resulting lack of oxygen to the brain causes damage that affects how the body functions, and in some cases, sadly leads to death. A stroke’s effects depend on where it takes place in the brain and how damaged the area is. As we age, arteries become more rigid and narrower and are more likely to become blocked. Certain medical conditions and lifestyle factors also increase a person’s risk of having a stroke.

There are three different types of strokes:

Ischaemic stroke

Caused by a blockage cutting off the blood supply to the brain and is the most common type of stroke.

Haemorrhagic stroke

A Haemorrhagic stroke is caused by bleeding in or around the brain and can have catastrophic consequences.

Transient ischaemic attack or TIA

A TIA or mini-stroke is the same as other strokes, except the symptoms only last for a short time because the blockage that stops the blood from getting to your brain is only temporary.

The impact of a stroke for some people may be relatively minor and may not last long. Some people have more severe problems that make them dependent on others. The time that recovery takes from a stroke can significantly reduce with the right level of care and support.

Symptoms of a stroke

Strokes occur every five minutes in the UK. They can happen to anyone at any age, at any time. It is critical to know how to spot the warning signs in yourself or someone else. The sooner you seek medical treatment, the quicker and more successful your recovery will be.

The signs that someone is having a stroke include:

  • Sudden weakness or numbness on one side of the body, including legs, hands, and feet

  • Difficulty finding words or speaking in clear sentences

  • Sudden blurred vision or loss of sight in one or both eyes

  • Sudden memory loss, confusion, dizziness or a sudden fall

  • A sudden and severe headache
