A stroke can have a huge impact on the patient and their family and their return home is a significant milestone on the way to recovery. The after-effects of a stroke can, however, be severe and long-lasting.
Bedfordshire Supported Housing carers provide rehabilitation support for people managing speech impairment, loss of muscle control or difficulties with swallowing. Other after-effects can include memory loss, fatigue, difficulty with communication and depression.
A stroke is no respecter of age, which is why every after-stroke care plan will be different. For some patients a light-touch hourly care service is the ideal solution. For elderly people requiring more complex care we can provide live-in care. This offers one-to-one support and attention throughout the critical weeks following on from hospitalisation.
Our goal at BSH is to help clients regain their independence. This is central to recovery and requires both familiar surroundings and compassionate care to overcome anxiety and build confidence. We assess each individual client, including a risk assessment of their environment. In consultation with patients, we create a tailored care plan to help them back to health.
We provide the following after stroke care services in Bedfordshire:
