After A Loved One Has Had a Stroke

When a loved one sustains a stroke, there are so many uncertainties and questions the family and loved ones face. Beginning with: How will they recover? Will they be able to care for themselves? And, if they aren’t, who will care for them?  On top of these questions are: How long will they be in the hospital? Will they go to rehab? And then, what's next?

As an Occupational Therapist for over 18 years, I have watched many families struggle with these questions and become overwhelmed. Often even the professionals can not easily answer the question being posed. The one common theme that helps alleviate some of the overwhelmed feelings, is to begin to put a plan into place. Even if there is no discharge date, if the eventual goal is for your loved one to return home, that is where my agency can assist, Home Helpers Delaware, Ohio.

The caregivers I hire are trained to provide care to those recuperating from stroke, while also giving family peace of mind and the ability to support their loved one by going to work, attending to other family members or even taking some time for themselves.

Home Helpers works with you to provide a tailored care plan for each individual’s needs.

We’re able to assist with: 

  • Personal care
  • Companion care
