Waterloo’s Trusted Choice for In-Home Stroke Care
After a senior parent or loved one experiences a stroke, you’ll need to learn about new medication schedules, diet restrictions, home safety hazards, and most importantly, how to meet your loved one’s new physical, emotional, and cognitive needs. When families are uncertain about the next steps to take after a senior loved one’s stroke, they rely on Home Care Assistance, a trusted provider of stroke care in Waterloo that is recognized for high caliber caregivers, flexible hourly and live-in care, and exceptional care management.
Promoting Independence During Post-Stroke Recovery
Knowing that independence is highly valued by the aging population, our stroke caregivers allow seniors to perform as much of their regular tasks as possible so they can regain and retain physical strength, as well as a sense of accomplishment and value. When assistance is needed, our stroke caregivers will be there to make sure the task is completed safely.
Caregivers Reduce the Risk of Secondary Stroke
Families enjoy peace of mind knowing a trained stroke caregiver is by their loved one’s side to carefully monitor health and report any significant changes in physical or cognitive abilities to the senior’s doctor as soon as possible. To reduce the risk of a secondary stroke, our caregivers encourage seniors to adopt healthy lifestyle habits and encourage:
- Participation in daily exercise and physical, occupational, and speech therapies
- A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains
- Social ties and provide companionship and emotional support
- Seniors to limit alcohol and quit smoking
Care for Senior Stroke Survivors with Limited Mobility
While we do provide hourly stroke care on an as-needed basis, we specialize in live-in stroke care which ensures safety and maximizes comfort for seniors who may be experiencing paralysis, a loss in fine motor skills, or dramatic changes in cognitive functioning. Our stroke caregivers will take on all activities of daily living, allowing seniors to focus on their recovery and rehabilitation.
