Stroke Rehabilitation at Home

Strokes are a leading cause of acquired disability, especially for older adults, and can make independent living a challenge. However, with appropriate support, returning home is possible and rehabilitation in the home environment can be just as successful as other options.

Strokes occur when there is an interruption of the blood supply to the brain, either from a blood clot or haemorrhage.

While stokes affect everyone differently, but some common issues in daily life following a stroke include:

  • Weakness and inability to move (paralysis)
  • Trouble swallowing and speaking
  • Changes to the way things are seen and felt (sensory or perceptual problems)
  • Incontinence
  • Tiredness and mood changes

Stroke rehabilitation requires a multidisciplinary team with Nurses and Carers serving in pivotal roles. 

Nurses and Carers can offer support in the home by:

  • Providing care coordinated within a multidisciplinary team
  • Monitoring changes and assessing further stroke risk
  • Assisting to put in place measures to reduce stroke risk
  • Providing continence care
  • Falls management assistance
  • Monitoring hydration and screening for malnutrition

The Nurses and Carers at InPlaceCare can coordinate within a team to help provide the necessary support for rehabilitation within the home environment.
