Discovering a loved one has had a stroke is always distressing. The situation is made worse by the uncertainty surrounding the future. Will they make a full recovery? What support will they need? Can they still live at home?
The answer is often yes. At Nobilis our experienced post-stroke care team, sit down with you and your family to work out what support you need. Your requirements will often change over time, so we make sure that your service is flexible and you have the opportunity to add and remove support according to your needs. Whether you need a lot or a little, Nobilis will deliver the support you need, when you need it.
The information that is out there can often be confusing and getting answers is not always easy.
We have experienced firsthand the difficulty of trying to find accurate and practical advice on living at home having had a stroke. It motivated us to create a specialist stroke care team who could answer all our client’s questions and provide the necessary support to allow them to continue to live in their own home.
The symptoms associated with having a stroke can make managing everyday tasks very difficult.
- Weakness or partial paralysis, which usually affects one side of the body in particular.
- A difficulty grasping and using one’s hand.
- Problems with movement, balance and walking.
- Trouble speaking and swallowing.
Previously simple tasks become challenging and trying to overcome them extremely frustrating for everyone involved.
Our clients and their families tell us that one of the most difficult aspects to come to terms with after having a stroke is the loss of one’s independence. That is why we make it a priority to restore as much of that independence as quickly possible, through a tailored and flexible care package that delivers the support you and your family need, when you need it.
Families are put under great strain when a loved one suffers a stroke; it puts a pressure on relationships and impacts on everyone’s day to day lives.
By working with our clients and their families, we are able to provide professional care and expertise, to go alongside the love and support provided by family members. The result is that our clients are able to experience the most enjoyable and active lives possible.
Don’t forget that we can also help with a variety of tasks outside of the conventional responsibilities of traditional care providers. We believe you shouldn’t have to waste time worrying about what is not getting done, which is why we now offer a unique care service for stroke victims and their families, which takes care of all the things you don’t have the time or ability to handle. Things like the cooking of proper meals, maintaining the garden, present buying, general shopping, looking after the house and more. During stressful times, these tasks can often get overlooked and cause unnecessary stress.
