Trust Our Experienced Stroke Caregivers for High-Quality Post-Stroke Care
All of the stroke caregivers at Ahwatukee Home Care Assistance are trained in our revolutionary Balanced Care Method, which aligns with stroke care by promoting:
- Healthy Diet – Senior stroke survivors require a healthy, balanced diet to reduce secondary stroke risk. Stroke caregivers can help with grocery shopping and meal preparation, creating meals that are limited in salt and rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.
- Regular Exercise – By engaging in regular exercise, senior stroke survivors can manage weight to reduce strain on the circulatory system, as well as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes, which are risk factors for stroke. Exercise in the form of recommended physical therapy can also be performed to help regain motor skills and function lost after the stroke.
- Social Ties – Studies show many seniors experience feelings of depression following a stroke. Our stroke caregivers not only care for new physical and cognitive side effects, but also provide companionship to ward off negative feelings such as loneliness or despair.
- Purpose – A stroke often affects a senior’s ability to carry out activities of daily living, which can be discouraging and frustrating. Our stroke caregivers are trained to provide assistance and support, encouraging seniors to do as much as they can on their own so they are able to gain feelings of confidence, self-esteem, and purpose, which can facilitate recovery and rehabilitation.
