Although strokes are commonly associated with aging, the truth is that strokes can happen to anyone at any point in time.  According to the National Stroke Association, stroke affects millions of individuals every year and is the leading cause of adult disability. Like many other medical issues, the severity of a stroke can vary. The follow-up care provided to an individual who has been affected by stroke is determined by how much daily assistance they will need. Victims of minor strokes may not require comprehensive assistance, but strokes can result in permanent, life-altering disabilities such as paralysis of one side of the body. Individuals who are managing a serious disability as the result of a stroke will require more involved, “hands-on” support.  In-Home care for stroke patients can help stroke victims to more easily maintain their daily routine while remaining in the setting that they are familiar with.
