For Elderly and Senior individuals, exercise and nutrition-centered lifestyles can’t be overemphasized enough. Being ignorant about the types of food you eat and how you spend each day can create health consequences that sneak up on you in the form of a heart attack or stroke. When you eat foods with too much sodium or cholesterol, your blood pressure can rise significantly and arteries can clot. Stroke is correlated with other medical conditions or lifestyle factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, physical inactivity, obesity, and bad habits such as smoking or drinking too much alcohol. To prevent a second stroke, it’s important to live healthier by seeking the advice of a dietician and following daily exercises that your physical therapist prescribes. This article titled 5 Lifestyle Changes to Lower High Blood Pressure provides a general guideline on some basic foods that are beneficial to a stroke survivor.
At A-1 Home Care, we can provide you with dedicated and experienced in-home Post Stroke Care on a 24 hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care basis when your loved one is ready to come home from the hospital or rehabilitation center. Having 24 hour living assistance is highly recommended because your loved one may still be working on regaining any functionality they have lost. Strength and mobility issues can make it impossible to complete activities of daily living and having someone to assist with daily exercises can be more helpful and motivating than doing them alone.
All of our Post Stroke caregivers, nurse aides, companions, and home helpers must have prior at home caregiving experience, verifiable professional references, a National Background Check/DMV Check, Tuberculosis testing, Malpractice/Liability insurance, First Aid/CPR training, and a personal interview with our office staff.
We serve the LA communities of Los Angeles, Brentwood, Westwood, Studio City, Culver City, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Pacific Palisades, Palos Verdes, Santa Monica, Burbank, Pasadena, and others in Los Angeles County.
To interview and hire a compassionate Post Stroke caregiver today, CALL us at 310-657-8780 for a FREE in-home assessment.
