a-1 home care

According to WebMD, one-third of individuals who suffer a stroke will have a second stroke in the first 2 years after the first one.  Stroke is highly variable between all individuals, yet the causes remain the same.  plaque build-up in blood vessels from high cholesterol can create blood clots, causing an ischemic stroke and high blood pressure can result in a blood vessel burst, causing a hemorrhagic stroke.  To prevent a second stroke from occuring, it’s important to know the cause of the first one to do all you can to change your lifestyle in a healthier direction.  For example, if you smoke, you should quit and if you didn’t exercise too much you should try to exercise every day.

This WebMD article titled Stroke Recovery and Arm Rehab provides 8 FAQ questions about stroke and rehabilitation that’s a starting point for becoming knowledgeable about stroke recovery. Lifestyle changes can only be made possible after significant improvements from rehabilitation.  Once your loved one is able to come back home, they may still need living assistance, but they can begin to live healthier by eating properly and participating in daily aerobic exercise.  Post Stroke recovery is no easy task to accomplish on your own.  Your loved one will likely need the assistance of a dedicated family member or caregiver to provide dedicated living assistance.
