Post-Stroke Care

Dignified Homecare After Suffering A Stroke

Aftercare for stroke victims doesn’t need to be done in an unfamiliar setting.

Many stroke victims have been able to get back on their feet while recovering at home with the help of high quality homecare.

A stroke, also called a transient ischemic attack (TIA), can profoundly impact a person’s life. And that impact is also profound for the victim’s family and loved ones. We provide homecare to families all over Ireland, helping them to get the support they require and deserve. Our carers can provide homecare during critical times or live-in care around the clock. Connected Health care professionals are fully trained and skilled at helping stroke patients to remain in their homes and live to their full independence potential.

Defining Post-Stroke Care

In the aftermath of a stroke, the journey towards recovery needn’t take place in unfamiliar surroundings. Connected Health is at the forefront of offering compassionate and comprehensive support within the comforting embrace of one’s home, assisting stroke survivors and their families in navigating rehabilitation.

Our Post-Stroke Care encompasses a holistic homecare service designed specifically for stroke patients. It’s a comprehensive approach that covers the spectrum of rehabilitation needs—from physical therapy aimed at restoring mobility and strength, speech and language therapy to surmount communication barriers, cognitive rehabilitation for memory and thinking challenges to support daily living tasks. We aim to create an empowering atmosphere that accelerates recovery and reinstates independence.

Who Should Consider Post-Stroke Care?

This care is essential for anyone recovering from a stroke, particularly those dealing with physical impairments, speech difficulties, or cognitive alterations. It offers families the reassurance that their loved one is receiving all-encompassing care focused on maximising recovery, thereby allowing them to concentrate on providing emotional support and cherishing valuable moments together.

The Ideal Time to Arrange Post-Stroke Care

The conversation about Post-Stroke Care should begin whilst the patient is still hospitalised. Early planning for homecare ensures a fluid transition from hospital to home, enabling continued recovery in a serene and familiar environment. This proactive approach fosters both healing and peace of mind for the family.
