Watching someone suffer the after-effects of a stroke is devastating. The changes that the brain undergoes can leave them with personality changes – you may no longer recognize your parent, and this can be troubling on its own. Further, many patients are unable to carry on with their daily lives due to the physical limitations placed on them. Stroke sufferers can benefit greatly from home care services, and here is why.
Important Parts of Their Recovery Do Not Slip Through the Cracks. People who have suffered a stroke are often left with many serious physical and mental effects, from vision problems to speech problems to paralysis on one side of the body, to name only a few. The majority of people are unequipped to handle stroke rehabilitation on their own. Many things slip through the cracks when people attempt to take on their loved one’s recovery on their own, and although they may have the best intentions, without additional support, these people simply do not receive the care that allows them to heal as best as they can.
Support Is Provided to the Entire Family. The burden of caring for your parent after a stroke can take a toll on you mentally and physically, impacting your ability to remain positive, which is what stroke sufferers need during this difficult time. Not only do home care services support your loved one but they also support you. Perhaps surprisingly, many stroke sufferers worry about taking care of themselves – many of them are relieved when the burden is taken off of their family.
Intensive Social and Physical Care Is Provided. Caregivers are also professionally trained to foster healing in the first place, skills that many people simply do not have. This intensive social and physical care and additional support allow stroke patients to recover faster. The one thing that all stroke sufferers have in common is that they feel anxious after a stroke and do not want to be left alone.
Everyday Tasks Are Taken Care Of. The reality is that we all lead busy lives and cannot be present at all hours of the day, nor can we provide the level of care that stroke sufferers need on a 24-hour basis. Caregivers can also take care of additional tasks that you would have otherwise had to do, such as preparing healthy meals, which is important in order to prevent a second stroke. Home care services make it possible for you to spend direct time with your loved one.
How to Ensure a Speedy Recovery with Home Care:
Caregivers can come to your loved one’s home on a schedule that works for you. Ideally, to ensure that he or she receives high-quality care from the beginning, these arrangements would be made when your loved one is still in the hospital.

What Our Customer Are Saying
Mom mom just passed away. The team at C-care was like extended family to us.....Raymond in particular. He always answered the phone, regardless of the time or day. No answering machines! He made sure he understood our needs and sent the PSW with the right skill set, to meet those needs.
Mom had dementia. Even thru this past year with the challenges of Covid19, she always had a PSW that understood how to successfully handle someone with the unique needs that dementia brings. Now our needs have changed and we just require care for my dad. Raymond will re-evaluate how are needs have changed and ensure we have the best care money can buy. In my experience with 2 other agencies, C-Care is hands down a more nurturing, better accommodating, and more caring. Don't let fancy companies fool you!! C-care is the best!!
C-Care has supported the daily care of my parents in law for over 2 years. I have been impressed with the level of care, empathy and personal affection each care-giver has shown in support of my husband's ailing parents. I have personally interacted with several PSWs and I have felt they represented the highest level of professional and ethical behavior. I have professional experience of good hiring practices as a retired HR executive and I have been impressed with C-Care case management and patient care. Great management, great patient care professionals.
Our daughter underwent spinal surgery. When I spoke with Raymond at C-Care I was under a lot of stress, when we finished talking I felt I had chosen the right place for her support. Raymond handled everything perfectly, supplying us with excellent care, his staff at C-Care are the best! I recommend this company without hesitation. Thank you Raymond.
I can't speak highly enough of the people at C-Care. Raymond and his team are nothing short of super stars. Each and every staff member I connected with was incredibly professional, patient and caring. Raymond never disappointed helping to provide scheduling for both short and long term needs. I quite simply do not know how I would have coped without him and his team.
My father suffered from Parkinson's and dementia for several years and C-Care provided 24 hour in home care for the last two years of his life. Raymond, who is in charge of operations, is committed to ensuring every caregiver is a good fit for the families they support. We had a combination of full and part time PSWs taking care of my dad. They deserve more than 5 stars. They were all reliable, warm, professional and honest. I was so happy with the company, I employed their services again for an elderly gentleman under my guardianship who was still living alone in his home. They are extremely responsive and answer emails and phone calls 7 days a week late into the night.
We were extremely happy with the quality of the caregivers. Our father was hospitalized for a week and needed support around the clock at the hospital and for the first 2 weeks at home. Raymond and Lina provided excellent people who looked after our father competently but also with compassion and sensitivity. They were an important factor in his recovery.
