Caregiving for Stroke Victims in Anaheim Hills

a-1 home care

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.

It can be difficult to put aside work or other obligations to provide 24 hour care for a loved one who has just come home after emergency treatment or rehabilitation for a stroke.  At A-1 Home Care, we provide Post Stroke Care in Anaheim Hills, CA to help your loved one get their life back on track.  Our compassionate and experienced Post Stroke caregivers can assist with compliance of doctor/therapist orders, activities of daily living, personal care, exercise, and preparing nutritional meals.

Whether you need a caregiver for 24 hour Live-In Care or want to provide some of the care yourself and only need a caregiver for Hourly In Home Care on some days, we can accommodate any scheduling needs.

All of our compassionate caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.

We serve the OC communities of Anaheim Hills, Yorba Linda, Brea, Corona, Fullerton, La Palma, Placentia, Villa Park, La Mirada, Tustin, Garden Grove, Westminster, and others in Orange County.

Caregiver & Elder Care Service

At A-1 Home Care, we understand the importance of keeping Elderly and Senior individuals busy with daily activities.  Although their physical or cognitive capabilities might be diminished, it’s always possible to simplify the activities for them to enjoy.  Sometimes it’s hard to think up activities that your loved one would be interested in participating in, which is why it’s important to understand their current and past interests and rekindle their passion for it.  For example, if your loved one enjoys gardening, enjoys card games, collecting things, or any other activity, think of ways to build upon their interest.  If they like to play poker, teach them another card game.

This article by Emillee Seltzer of Aging Care talks about how to create meaningful activities for Elderly individuals.  Although written for individuals with Alzheimer’s, the advice can be applied to all Elderly individuals.

At A-1 Home Care, we can provide a caregiver, nurse aide, or companion who has experience providing daily in-home care for Elderly and Senior individuals.  Our caregivers are available for 24 hour live-in care or hourly part-time care.  We understand how busy you are, and want to help keep your loved one happy and busy in their old age.  We can engage your loved one in activities they enjoy, try out new activities, and provide personal care services throughout the day.

Post Stroke Care

Strokes, also known as “brain attacks” occur when a blood clot blocks an artery or blood vessel, interrupting blood flow to the brain.  This is bad news, as the lack of blood flow causes brain cells to die, which negatively affects the person’s ability to perform abilities that the affected part of the brain once knew.  Strokes can result in disabilities with speech, movement, or memory.

With the help of rehabilitation services from physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech/language pathologists, stroke victims can sometimes regain and refine any skills they once had – however this process could take months to years depending on the severity of brain damage.  This Q & A Fact Sheet from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke provides information on post-stroke rehabilitation, types of disabilities resulting from stroke, medical professionals that can help with rehabilitation, and more.

A-1 Home Care provides post-stroke in-home care services in Anaheim Hills, Corona, Fullerton, Yorba Linda, La Habra, La Mirada, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, and other cities in Orange County and Los Angeles County.  We offer caregivers, nurse aides, and companions who are able to assist your Elderly or Senior loved one with day-to-day activities and can follow doctor’s orders or instructions from rehabilitation therapists.  Our caregivers are available for 24 hour live-in care or hourly part-time care services.
