As many of you know, May is recognized as Stroke Recovery Awareness month. At Home Care Assistance of Vancouver, we want to take the time to remember the loved ones we have lost from strokes and celebrate the more than 300,000 stroke survivors throughout Canada. We are dedicated to enhancing the lives of senior stroke survivors and provide support to seniors and their families as they adjust to life after a stroke.
Knowing the warning signs of a stroke is critical in saving the life of your loved one and in helping to prevent permanent disability. Early detection and immediate professional care can help limit the damage a stroke can have on an individual. The following list outlines the common signs and symptoms associated with a stroke.
- Numbness of the face, arm or leg especially on one side of the body
- Blurred vision or trouble seeing out of one (or both) eyes
- Severe headache (typically of unknown origin)
- Confusion, trouble with speech and understanding
- Trouble walking, balancing and coordination
At Home Care Assistance of Vancouver, our caregivers specialize in providing stroke care. They are highly trained to detect any of the above symptoms and educated on how to best care for seniors who have suffered a stroke.
