Recovering from a stroke, but not losing independence
Discovering a loved one has suffered a stroke is distressing with symptoms often making managing everyday tasks difficult.
Typical symptoms include:
- Weakness or partial paralysis, often on one side of the body in particular
- A difficulty grasping and using one’s hand
- Movement, balance, and walking difficulty
- Trouble speaking and swallowing.
Families are often put under great strain when a loved one suffers a stroke; it puts a pressure on relationships and impacts on everyone’s day-to-day lives. The information out there can be confusing and raises lots of questions about the future: Will they make a full recovery? What support will they need? Can they still live at home? The answer to all those is often yes.
At Nobilis, our experienced post-stroke team will sit down with you and your family to work out what support is needed. Requirements differ widely from person-to-person, depending on the severity of the stroke and often change over time. Our flexible service gives you the opportunity to add or remove support according to need.
Our bespoke approach allows us to provide professional care and expertise alongside the love and support of family members. The result is that our clients are able to experience the most enjoyable and active lives possible.
And don’t forget we can also help with a variety of tasks outside of the conventional responsibilities of traditional care. This includes things such as cooking proper meals, maintaining the garden, present buying, general shopping, looking after the house and more. During stressful times, these tasks can often get overlooked and cause unnecessary stress.
Our smart technologies are in place to support the care we offer. From a family portal, to cameras and sensors, technology works hand-in-hand with our personal services.
We can provide a ‘virtual window’ into client homes so family members can check on their wellbeing remotely and be alerted to any issues.
Smart sensors monitor key areas and activities in the home, and signal alerts if they detect an unexpected change in behaviour, or something that might cause concern. At the same time, our carers are also there to act quickly, and provide support on the ground as needed.
Here are just some examples of what we can install:
- Sensors (bed, motion, chair, electrical equipment)
- Cameras (front & back door/key rooms)
- In-home technology (Google home, family hub).
