Having a stroke can be a tragic experience for the victim and their family. Strokes occur when brain tissue is damaged because of a lack of blood flow to the brain from burst or blocked blood vessel pathways. The effects of stroke vary widely between people in terms of the area of the brain affected and how much damage that determines what complications your loved one will face and whether they are temporary or permanent. When your loved one is a stroke survivor, you want to ensure that all precautions are taken to prevent a recurrent stroke. This may mean lifestyle changes that focus on better nutrition and more exercise.
Sweets such as candy are normally looked down upon by physicians and dieticians as a part of a healthy diet, but this Swedish study has found that chocolate eaters may have a lower risk of stroke when eaten in moderation because cocoa has some heart healthy properties. Check out the article here.
At A-1 Home Care, we provide compassionate Post Stroke Care services on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis for recovering stroke victims. It can be difficult handling activities of daily living right after a stroke because of temporary or long term paralysis or cognitive effects that may render your loved one incapable of caring for themselves.
All of our Post Stroke caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, Firs Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.
We serve the OC communities of Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Corona Del Mar, Laguna Beach, Irvine, Tustin, Santa Ana, Anaheim Hills, Garden Grove, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, and others in Orange County.
To interview and hire a compassionate caregiver in your area, CALL us today at 949-650-3800 for a FREE in-home assessment.
