Homecare and Stroke

Strokes occur when the brain suddenly is robbed of blood flow and oxygen. There is a possibility that the brain is being affected by a blocked blood vessel. In order to fully recover, many people need extensive rehabilitation as a result of the damage they sustained. An individual suffering from a stroke may also experience symptoms such as depression and anxiety. Problems with memory and speech can impair the ability of people to communicate effectively.

If you have had a stroke, your chances of having another one are high. That’s why a nurse at home is a must. Our team will closely monitor your loved ones and be aware of the factors that can be managed appropriately in order to provide good care. We can help bring a sense of life and function back to people and their families after a stroke by providing the right care. We’ll provide the attention and compassion needed to help recover from a stroke.

If you have a parent or loved one who has recently had a stroke, you can call Ruaa Healthcare to provide care at home.

We tailor our services to each senior’s needs since the effects of stroke can vary greatly from person to person.

If you think someone may be having a stroke, act F.A.S.T. and do the following test:
F – Face: Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
A – Arms: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
S – Speech: Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is the speech slurred or strange?
T – Time: If you see any of these signs, call 9-9-8 right away.
