Dignified & Expert Post-Stroke Care

Aftercare for stroke victims doesn’t need to be done in an unfamiliar setting. Connected Health has supported many individuals in their home surroundings, and their families, to get back on their feet following a stroke.

A stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) can profoundly impact a person’s life. It doesn’t only impact the person affected, but the whole family. We provide homecare to families nationwide, allowing them to get the support they require. Our carers can provide visiting care during critical times or live-in care around the clock. Connected Health carers are highly skilled at supporting stroke patients in their homes.

What is Post-Stroke Care

Post-Stroke Care, as offered by Connected Health, is an all-encompassing homecare service tailored for individuals recuperating from a stroke. It involves a holistic approach to rehabilitation, addressing the vast array of challenges a stroke survivor may face. This care includes physical therapy to regain mobility and strength, speech and language therapy to overcome communication hurdles, cognitive rehabilitation to address memory and thinking difficulties, and assistance with daily living activities. We foster a supportive environment that accelerates recovery and rebuilds independence.

The Target Group for Post-Stroke Home Care

This specialised care is vital for anyone who has suffered a stroke. It’s especially crucial for those grappling with physical limitations, speech impairments, or cognitive changes post-stroke. For families, it assures their loved one receives comprehensive care geared towards maximising recovery, allowing them to focus on emotional support and spending quality time together.

Optimal Timing to Seek Post-Stroke Home Care

Families should initiate discussions about Post-Stroke Care during the hospitalisation phase. Planning early for home care ensures a smooth transition from the hospital to the home, where recovery can continue in a comfortable and familiar setting. It’s about creating a seamless continuum of care that fosters recovery and reassurance for the family.
