Mar 24, 2017 by Comfort Keepers of Pleasanton

Senior in home care can help your loved one do all they can to prevent a stroke, which can be taxing on a person not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally. Comfort Keepers will be here for your family and offer ways to prevent strokes so your senior loved one can continue living happy, healthy and independently.

Senior in home care can be a tremendous help to your loved one, helping them do all they can to prevent a stroke, but also recover if they have already had one. Some prevention steps include:

  • Treating all major health issues like managing high blood pressure and cholesterol. It is also important that your loved one keep their diabetes in check if they have the condition.
  • A caregiver will help your loved one adopt a healthier lifestyle.
  • Doing all they can to get to a healthy weight if they are not there yet. For senior this often means gaining weight.
  • Getting regular exercise is key and can do wonders when it comes to preventing stroke.

If your loved one has already suffered a stroke, a senior in home care professional can help them on the road to recovery. Stroke rehabilitation in seniors can last anywhere from a few weeks to many years. Your loved one's medical care will be carried out by doctors and nurses. However, caregivers play a crucial role and non-medical care can make all the difference in helping your senior loved one recover to their full potential.

Caregivers can also help your loved one lead an independent lifestyle even after a stroke. This means helping them take care of personal hygiene, bathe and go to the bathroom, but it can also mean assisting them with household chores.
