What is a stroke?

A stroke occurs when blood supply to a part of the brain is interrupted, leading to potential damage to brain cells and alterations in bodily functions and sensations. The impact varies among individuals, depending on the specific location within the brain where the stroke occurs. Certain conditions and lifestyle choices can increase your risk of experiencing a stroke.

There are three different types of stroke:

Ischaemic stroke – This is caused by a blockage cutting off the blood supply to the brain, killing brain cells. Damage to the brain cells impacts the way your body works.

Haemorrhagic stroke – This is caused by bleeding in or around the brain. The blood supply to part of the brain is cut off, killing brain cells.

Transient ischaemic attack – TIA can also be known as a ‘mini-stroke’ as the symptoms last for a shorter amount of time.

How can stroke care help?

After stroke can help promote recovery by offering support with the following:

  • Following recovery plans
    Create a personalised care plan tailored to your needs, detailing medication, rehabilitation sessions with our in-house experts, and support every step of your recovery journey.
  • Recover safely at home
    Post-stroke care ensures your safe recovery at home by addressing trip hazards and calling on the support of our in-house experts.
  • Help with domestic chores
    Our carers will aid your recovery by assisting with light housework, including vacuuming, laundry and watering your plants, creating a positive home environment.
  • Personalised support from a one-to-one carer
    We ensure that tailored assistance is provided by our carers to meet your needs, preferences and circumstances.
  • Medication support
    Our stroke carers can help manage your medication administration by prescribing them at the correct time and recording this on a digital platform.
  • Maintaining familiar routines
    The care team will support you in maintaining your regular day-to-day routines seamlessly.

Specialist stroke care after care led by our experts

At Cherished Home Care, our stroke aftercare involves developing a personalised care plan tailored to address your needs and the challenges you may face after experiencing a stroke. Our team of in-house clinicians and experts collaborate closely with our carers, ensuring they are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver exceptional care tailored to the needs of stroke patients.

A care manager and two Occupational Therapists will work closely with our carers to inspect your home to provide expert guidance and advice as to what equipment should be used to ensure safe movement and mobility around your home whilst minimising falls. This is particularly important considering the potential impact a stroke can have on your day-to-day functioning.

Our carers undergo extensive five-day induction training that covers a wide range of topics, including stroke care specific training overseen by our in-house experts. This ensures that your carer has an in-depth understanding of what support measures need to be in place, so that you receive the best support possible at every step of your care journey.

Respite Care

A temporary solution

Respite care is a short-term care solution that offers support with your daily tasks and personal care from the comfort of your own home. It can be the preferred choice if you’ve recently been discharged from hospital following a stroke or if your family caregiver is taking a respite break to rest and recharge.

Costs of stroke care

The cost for providing individuals with stroke aftercare may have a higher price point due to its specialisation. However, it is important to note that residential care can cost up to £2,500 a week without the added benefits that home care has to offer. With Cherished Home Care you can stay at home surrounded by people you love, and the many memories you cherish whilst receiving person-centred support.

Our hourly care services start from £29 per hour, with a setup fee of £150, which is reimbursed after four weeks of care.
