When you are used to leading an independent life, going home after a stay in hospital or coping with an accident, illness or a temporary disability can be a real challenge, particularly if you live alone
You may be nervous about returning home and need just a little extra support for a few days or weeks. You may need longer term help over a number of months as you regain your daily living skills – and your confidence – or learn to do things in a different way, so that you can carry on leading the life you want.
For example: the physical demands required to relearn skills and adapt to your new limitations in the initial weeks following a stroke or Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) can be emotionally demanding and keeping motivated and restoring your confidence can be extremely difficult. Our Care Consultant will work with you to develop a care plan that takes into account your preferences, needs and choices.
Matching you with a small team of Care Professionals means that if speech is an issue in the initial days after the stroke, communication difficulties are quickly overcome and a variety of techniques can be developed to ensure your voice is always heard.
