Stroke patients and their caregivers need help and guidance from their healthcare providers to educate and guide them in understanding stroke, how to live post-stroke and how to achieve the best quality of life.
Printing and sharing these resources will assist you in educating your patients on rapid stroke signs and symptoms recognition, treatment and recovery. Together, we can empower stroke patients and their families to embrace life after stroke.
Stroke care at home
Stroke is a complex condition, and caring for a stroke survivor is a challenge. Caregivers struggle to communicate with the person and do not always understand the behavior problems caused by the stroke. They find it difficult to help the stroke survivor with physical activities such as dressing and transfers. This results in problems, which are actually easily preventable, such as painful shoulders and hands, contractures and poor habit patterns. Use this practical guide as a useful tool to support you in caring for your stroke patient.
