C-Care understands the severity of strokes and the impact they can have on individuals and their loved one since when a loved one suffers a stroke, the consequences can be devastating. Providing the right care for stroke recovery places significant levels of stress on loved ones. Our care provides expert services that help individuals through the process of recovery and alleviate the stress from their loved ones.
Strokes occur when the brain suddenly is robbed of blood flow and oxygen. This can be the result of a blocked blood vessel leading to the brain. The damage that results can last a long period of time and many people require extensive rehabilitation in order to fully recover.
When an individual suffers a stroke, symptoms such as depression and anxiety can become severe as well. Problems with memory and speech can impair the ability of people to communicate effectively.
The care provided for stroke recovery includes a team of speech therapists, doctors, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists. For many people, personal care in bathing, and dressing is provided along with assisting in maintaining function in their daily habits. Additional doctor appointments and rehabilitation sessions must also be completed and ensured by stroke recovery caregivers.
When an individual suffers a stroke, their chances of experiencing a second one is high. Caregivers must be able to closely monitor people and be aware of the factors that can be managed appropriately. With the right care, we bring a renewed sense of life and function to people and their families. We help ease the burden of long-term care and provide the attention and compassion for stroke recovery.
Stroke recovery requires appropriate rehabilitation, and our staff is trained to help individuals through this process. C-Care personal support workers can facilitate therapeutic treatments that include physical mobility, speech, and emotional needs. Through ongoing communication with physiotherapists and other health care providers, we help build a comprehensive approach to stroke recovery.
C-Care is a leading provider of care services for mental health issues. We help individuals by monitoring behaviour, meeting their daily needs, and providing a daily structure that minimizes the challenges of mental health issues.
Mental health issues can appear in many forms. They affect the behaviour and thoughts of people, making it difficult for family members to provide the appropriate care system. They can also confuse the people affected and their families. They can create fear as people still fail to fully understand the nature of these issues. The right support system helps people address the various symptoms of these issues and give their families hope in their long-term care.
Mental health issues can be a source of shame for those who suffer from their debilitating effects. They feel ashamed and attempt to conceal their suffering from loved ones. We strive to remove the stigma by providing compassionate care that gives people the reassurance they need to move forward.
In many cases, individuals have not been diagnosed and struggle to cope with many issues that can cause fear and confusion as they work to understand the challenges they have. Their physical health can begin to suffer as a result of not having the proper care they need.
By providing access to the appropriate services, our care can help people efficiently treat their issues and better manage their daily living. We collaborate with mental health service providers to give people the treatment and attention they need.
C-Care can assist in the recovery process by supplying:
Registered Nurses and certified Personal Support Workers who aid in facilitating a recovery that allows someone who’s suffered a stroke the chance to reach their maximum recovery potential.
Assistance with activities of daily living which include: personal hygiene, meal preparation, dressing, and undressing. Advanced understanding of various forms of care in order to assist in recovery.
C-Care provides quality care for individuals with mental health issues by understanding the needs of all those we care for. Each individual is unique, and our staff can help carry out daily personal care, feeding, and a variety of necessary services for healthy function.
There are several common causes of a stroke, influenced by your lifestyle, genetics, and other factors. High blood pressure is one of the most significant risks. Tobacco use is also a known cause, as are various forms of heart disease, being overweight, and diabetes. Other causes include your diet, gender, and even age (the risk of a stroke increases considerably as you get older).
As we’ve explored previously, several foods can increase the risk of suffering a stroke. These include processed foods rich in trans fats, smoked and processed meats, and table salt. Swapping these out with healthier and safer alternatives, such as Himalayan salt, can reduce the risk.
Sudden confusion or an inability to understand speech are telltale signs of a stroke. Other red flags to watch out for include dizziness, stumbling and/or a lack of coordination, numbness on one side of the body or in specific limbs, and vision difficulties in one or both eyes.
For starters, avoid tobacco and processed foods. You should also reduce stress triggers and maintain emotional balance to keep your blood pressure under control, as this is the primary cause of a stroke. Reducing alcohol consumption can help as well, as well as your cholesterol intake and eating healthier. Regular exercise – ideally, the amount recommended by doctors for someone of your age – is also very important.
It’s important to ensure that stroke patients take their required medication, exercise accordingly based on the rehabilitation programming recommended to them, and practice daily in the areas negatively impacted (these may include speech therapy or using their hands, for instance). It’s also important that you can keep them safe, comfortable, and not stressed. In such circumstances that can prove challenging even to those familiar with the needs of stroke patients, it’s often best to procure in-home caregiving services. These will also allow you to take better care of yourself, avoiding burnout.
This is a slang term for a transient ischemic attack, otherwise known as a TIA. A mini-stroke happens when the human brain experiences a temporary fluctuation in blood supply due to insufficient oxygen. The spinal cord or even the retina may also experience this. When a TIA occurs, there is a very high risk of suffering a full-blown stroke within 48 hours, so it’s crucial that you get yourself to an emergency room so that your vitals are monitored during this period.
Absolutely. Stress is known as the silent killer, and it’s by far one of the most prominent contributors towards various illnesses, including strokes. Lowering your blood pressure by mitigating stress, having a more positive daily life, and feeling better about yourself can help reduce the risk. After all, we deserve to enjoy every moment!
