To promote a fast and safe recovery and to reduce the risk of secondary stroke, Home Care Assistance of North Broward, FL, offers comprehensive stroke care services to seniors in the comfort of their own homes. All services are provided by our trained and compassionate stroke caregivers and may include:
- Personal CareThe side effects of a stroke can range from minor speech problems to complete paralysis, making personal care activities a challenge and safety issue for a senior stroke survivor. Our stroke caregivers are trained to meet your loved one’s unique needs and assist with bathing, dressing, grooming, and incontinence with the utmost dignity and respect.

They’ll take on all of your loved one’s activities of daily living so regular routines are not interrupted and focus can be placed on a safe, healthy recovery.
- Healthy Meal PreparationDiet is one of the most notable risk factors of stroke, and it’s extremely important that senior stroke survivors adhere to a well-balanced diet that includes lean proteins, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. Trust our stroke caregivers to assist in preparing healthy meals and feeding if necessary.
- Exercise and Mobility AssistanceTo promote physical functioning after a stroke, our caregivers will encourage their clients to participate in regular physical fitness activities and can help with any exercises recommended by physical therapists. Having a trained stroke caregiver by your loved one’s side can promote safety and reinforce feelings of reassurance and motivation.

Allow our professional stroke caregivers to provide reliable transportation and accompany your loved one to appointments to ensure all recommended exercise and diet plans are being followed.
