Stroke is one of the major health problems worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a stroke is caused by the interruption of the blood supply to the brain, usually, because a clot blocks a blood vessel bursts. This cuts off the supply of oxygen and nutrients, causing damage to the brain tissue.
In most cases, it causes long-term physical and psychological problems, which require special treatment and recovery to be carried on for months or even years after the acute event. At the same time, stroke is largely preventable. In 70% of cases, patients can avoid the disease with the effective management of hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, avoidance of smoking and obesity. In case you or your beloved person had a stroke, you will need the help of professional nurses who are trained to help people and their families cope with the after effects of the stroke, as well as helping to reduce the chances of stroke recurrence.
Nurses play a pivotal role in all phases of care of the stroke patient. At Aurora Home Health, we have a skilled and experienced team of nurses providing post-stroke care in the DFW area.
After a stroke, patients can have difficulties with their memory, attention, understanding, and decision-making. During this difficult journey, they may require services from several professionals such as a physiotherapist, speech therapist and nurses, to get back to their lives easier and faster. At Aurora Home Health, we provide comprehensive and holistic stroke care solutions to ensure the effective rehabilitation of a patient.
