A stroke can be an extremely challenging medical event to cope with and recover from; patients must simultaneously overcome physical, cognitive and emotional challenges and many stroke survivors report frustrations with the recovery process. In-home services can help ensure a successful recovery at home to maximise long-term independence.
We all value our independence and many of us are accustomed to an active lifestyle. However, anyone recovering from a stroke must understand that the recovery process cannot be rushed. The brain is gradually rebuilding damaged synapses, which can cause mental fogginess or a sense of mild confusion. The body is trying to recover and activities that were once routine, such as walking or hand movement, may present new physical challenges. Receiving support from a Carer or a loved one during this time can help to support both physical needs as well as improve cognitive function e.g. using memory exercises.
Blood test follow-up
Because strokes are caused by a reduction in blood flow to the brain, anticoagulants may be prescribed to facilitate recovery. The dosage is adjusted based on blood flow, so regular blood testing is critical to ensure a safe and accurate dosage.
Doing too much too soon can be a risk to the recovery process, however basic tasks should be attempted to an individual’s own comfort levels. These efforts will facilitate physical recovery and small accomplishments can provide a big mental boost, helping to motivate toward the long-term goals. Incremental steps with daily activities, using the support from family and Carers will add up to long term success.
