Stroke Care

A Holistic Approach to Stroke Live-in Care Services

Recovering from a stroke is a unique journey, and navigating it shouldn’t feel like walking alone. At A Star Care Services, we believe in a holistic approach to live-in care, focusing not just on your physical needs but also on your emotional, mental, and social well-being. We go beyond just physical therapy. We help you regain strength, memory, and confidence through personalised exercises, brain-stimulating activities, and emotional support. Feeling isolated? We’ll reconnect you with loved ones and your community. Need help expressing yourself? Speech therapy is part of the plan. Plus, we ensure you’re well-nourished and your home is safe and accessible.

And it doesn’t stop there. We support your family, collaborate with your healthcare team, and adapt our care as you progress. It’s not just recovery, it’s rediscovering the life you love – with a helping hand every step of the way.

Each year, about 100,000 people in the UK suffer a stroke. That is one person every 5 minutes.

It is important to understand the scope and impact of this condition in the UK to appreciate the need for comprehensive stroke live in care support:

Risk Factors: Stroke risk factors include family history, diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure. Raising awareness and implementing preventive measures is crucial in reducing these risks and promoting overall health.

Stroke Survivors: With 1.3 million stroke survivors in the UK, many contend with enduring challenges stemming from stroke-induced brain injuries. Comprehensive care and support are essential to help these individuals regain their quality of life and independence.

Understanding Strokes

A stroke is a severe and potentially life-threatening medical event that occurs when there is a disruption in the blood supply to a specific region of the brain. This interruption can be caused by various factors, such as a blood clot blocking a blood vessel (ischemic stroke) or a blood vessel rupturing and causing bleeding into the brain (haemorrhagic stroke).

What makes a stroke tricky is that it affects people differently. Some people might have a small problem, like a glitch in a computer program, while others might have a big problem like the computer not working at all. So, just like how your computer can have different issues, strokes can impact people in various ways.

Which Part of the Brain is Affected?

 The brain has different areas that control things like moving, talking, thinking, and feeling. If a stroke hits a specific part of the brain, it can cause problems related to what that part does. For example, damage to the part responsible for movement might lead to weakness or not being able to move correctly.

How Bad the Stroke Is…

Some strokes are milder and cause temporary issues, while others are severe and result in long-lasting problems or even permanent damage.

Getting Help Quickly

When someone has a stroke, getting medical help as soon as possible is crucial. Fast action, like giving special medicines or doing procedures to remove clots, can reduce the harm and improve the chances of recovery. That is where our stroke live in care services come in.
