Simply defined, a stroke is a “brain attack” caused by a lack of blood flow to a certain area of the brain. When brain cells are deprived of oxygen, they begin to die, and the severity of the aftermath depends on the area of the brain where the stroke occurred. Small strokes may bring about temporary weakness in the arm or leg on one side of the body; more severe strokes involve permanent paralysis or complete loss of speech. According to the National Council on Aging, 30% to 40% of persons over age 65 fall each year. After a stroke, those statistics skyrocket due to vision problems and lack of coordination resulting from the stroke. Prevent falls by hiring an in-home caregiver for your elderly loved one. A-1 Home Care provides some of the best senior care in Orange County.
More than two-thirds of stroke survivors will have some sort of disability. To assist your elderly loved one in a way that preserves dignity, A-1 Home Care selects and sends Orange County’s best caregivers who have years of experience and training under their belt. Does your loved one have a hard time getting dressed or eating properly? Many stroke survivors are susceptible to choking because they cannot feel food on one side of the mouth. Having a CPR-trained, certified nurse aide around the house gives everyone a peace of mind. It feels wonderful knowing you have an expert in-home caregiver who knows exactly what she’s doing.
