When someone has a stroke, it can affect them in various ways. The exact effects are dependent mostly on the severity of the stroke and the senior’s other health conditions. No matter what, though, it is important to know that Aaron Home Care can help your elderly loved one a great deal after they have a stroke. Stroke care at home can encourage your elderly loved one to make progress and allow them to get the most support possible.
Most people who have a stroke will struggle with basic motor impairments. It is very important that they practice physical therapy exercises to work on improving these issues. The care professionals from Aaron Home Care that come to your elderly loved one’s house can encourage them to practice these exercises every day. It is vital to note that regular movement is key to stroke recovery.
Another reason why post stroke home care can be helpful is that our care professionals will support your elderly loved one without taking over. Remember, movement is necessary for stroke recovery. So, if your elderly loved one didn’t have to do anything for themselves, it would take a lot longer for them to recover. Care professionals support and help when it is necessary while allowing your elderly loved one to be independent, too.
The care professionals at Aaron Home Care that come to your loved one’s home don’t work alone. When it comes to stroke recovery, we want to make sure your elderly loved one is doing what is necessary to recover.
The best way for us to do this is to work with other types of support such as case managers, family caregivers, social workers, occupational therapists, and doctors. Our caregivers can help to keep a record of medication side effects, provide medication reminders, and work with all of your team to ensure your loved one is getting the most efficient care from all sides.
When someone has a stroke, it can be very emotionally draining. Just the thought of having the stroke and being worried about having another is enough to cause anxiety. However, the recovery process and not being able to do basic tasks can be challenging too. Most people who have a stroke do need some emotional support. Your elderly loved one can get that from the compassionate care professional at Aaron Home Care.

When interviewing an agency that provides in-home caregivers, find the answers to these 3 critical questions first.
All home care organizations state-wide must be approved by the California Home Care Registry. A Home Care Organization (HCO) license ensures the following requirements are met:
Why It Matters to YOU:
Home Care Licensure was set up by the state to protect the consumer, and is a requirement of all California Home Care Organizations (HCO)! No agency should be operating without a valid HCO license.
Furthermore, families who hire private caregivers or choose “referral” agencies unknowingly become “employers,” subject to the all the risk and liabilities that professional insurance protects against, like theft, on-the-job injury, etc.). Without the types of insurance required by state licensure, and without knowing labor law, families could be putting themselves at risk for costly lawsuits, fees, and fines. By choosing a state licensed home care agency, you know you are protected.
Any working California caregiver, whether hired privately or through an agency, must be registered as a Home Care Aide (HCA) through the state. All registered HCAs are required to:
Why It Matters to YOU:
Feel safer knowing that any registered home care aide working in your home will have cleared an extensive government background check, will be free of tuberculosis, and will be adequately and continually trained to perform basic caregiving tasks. This is the bare minimum to be compliant with California regulations. Every individual agency may require more of their caregivers.
Not all agencies keep the same office hours. Some agencies let voice mail pick up calls after office hours and on weekends. Other agencies forward their phones to an answering service who will relay the messages on. The best agencies will have dedicated care managers on call 24 hours a day ready to help you, right then and there. Find out how accessible agency care managers are.
Why It Matters to YOU:
Things come up, at all hours of the day and night. When something happens after hours, you or the caregivers in your home will need to talk to someone who can make decisions and take action. Basically, you need an agency who is truly there for you at all times.
