Home Care for Patients with Stroke, Sunshine Coast

What to expect when your loved one has a stroke and how to minimize the risk

When a life-changing event occurs to your loved one, it is okay to feel emotional and have a lot of questions, and it is especially important to make sure that you are able to give them all the support and balanced care that they need. Sudden mood changes, depression and second strokes are a high risk factor for those who’ve already had one stroke. It is a carer’s duty to encourage the survivor to lead a healthy lifestyle and make sure they take their medication.

The overwhelming role of a stroke survivor carer

Becoming a carer puts the life of those you are caring for first and will seem an overwhelming task initiallly, but it is also very rewarding and will give you a more positive outlook on life. It is all right to ask for some extra help too when you need it, after all having more help means that the survivor will be getting better support.

Reduce the risks of another stroke by adopting a healthier lifestyle

Signs of recovery may take three to four months or even longer, which is why supporting the survivor both physically and mentally to encourage them to stay positive is essential. That helps more than anything to promote a speedy recovery and better quality of life, and so does being able to continue to live at home.
