Will Your Senior Need to Move After a Stroke?

Your elderly parent suffering a stroke can be one of the most frightening things you experience as a family caregiver. This is a life-changing medical event and your senior will need more care and assistance as they recover, which means you will need to make a variety of potentially challenging decisions. One is whether your senior will be able to remain in their own home or if they will need to move after their discharge from the hospital. Most people spend several days to even a few weeks after a stroke receiving care in a hospital setting, but recovery continues well after they return home. This may leave you wondering if they will be able to receive adequate care in their own home and if they can stay safe there, or if they will need to move. Making the decision that is right for them, and for you as their caregiver, can make a tremendous difference in their recovery and in their life moving forward.

Elder Care in Walnut Creek CA: Will Your Senior Need to Move After a Stroke?

Elder Care in Walnut Creek CA: Will Your Senior Need to Move After a Stroke?

Some issues to consider when determining if your senior may need to move after a stroke include:

  • Does your senior live close enough to you to receive care as needed?
  • Does your senior live close enough to their medical team for ongoing treatment?
  • Is their home accessible and safe according to the challenges they face after their stroke?
  • Are they struggling with mobility issues that make navigating their home and managing their personal care needs independently dangerous or impossible?
  • Are they experiencing cognitive functioning issues after their stroke that might make living independently dangerous?
  • Do you have space in your home to give them privacy and comfort if they transitioned into living in your home?

 

Aging in place is an important concept for most elderly adults, but if your senior is struggling with health, mobility, or other challenges, you may worry they won’t be able to accomplish this goal safely. As their family caregiver, you want what’s best for your parent, and elder care can help. Whether your senior remains in their own home or transitions into living with you, an elderly home care services provider can help them live their best life, maintain more independence, and stay safe and healthy as they age in place. Highly customized services ensure your parent gets the respect, care, and assistance they deserve, and the quality of life they desire. These services can include transportation, meal preparation, medication reminders, mobility assistance, help with personal care tasks, and more.

When my grandmother’s health began to deteriorate... My greatest fear was that something would happen to her when I couldn’t be there. She had become unsteady on her feet, forgot to take her medications when she was supposed to, was not eating meals that fit into her dietary restrictions and often failed to recognize signs that she was getting into trouble. I knew that it was her firm desire to stay in her own home, but the amount of oversight I knew she needed was sometimes overwhelming for me to do alone. This is where my journey started! Providing care to seniors in our community is not just a job for me... It is something that has touched my life personally and something that I am passionate about! I know firsthand the worry and uncertainty caused when someone you love becomes ill or injured and how overwhelming the responsibility of caring for a loved one can be. I also know that finding a compassionate caregiver can often restore health, provide seniors with a renewed sense of control and independence, reduce depression, and relieve family members so they can once again be a caring son or daughter. So if you find yourself or someone you may know, in this situation... Our team of care managers and professional, compassionate caregivers at Provident Care would be honored to help you care for your loved one. Our staff is committed to caring for our clients as if we were caring for a member of our own family.
