When an Elderly or Senior loved one suffers a stroke, it can be difficult for a family member to know how to be as supportive as possible in the aftermath. You might not have too much knowledge about stroke except that it can be caused by having high blood pressure, eating poorly, or smoking. A stroke occurs when brain tissue is deprived of oxygen because of a blood vessel clot (ischemic) or blood vessel burst (hemorrhagic). Depending on the level of brain tissue damage your loved one suffered, recovery may be short term or long term and they may have to undergo rehabilitation for paralysis, memory/thinking, or speech/language complications.
When your loved one is ready to come home to live independently, they’ll most likely still need living assistance until they are able to complete tasks of daily living on their own. While recovering, it’s important to follow doctor’s orders and lead a healthy lifestyle that will prevent a recurring stroke. This section of the American Stroke Association’s site titled Healthy Living After Stroke serves as a great starting point resource in emphasizing the importance of nutrition and physical activity for post stroke survivors. Check it out here.
