Stroke Care Tailored to Individual Needs & Preferences

Many seniors will require some form of stroke care in Greater Hartford, CT following a stroke. Depending on which part of the brain was affected, a patient may struggle with a number of physical and mental challenges. From the loss of fine motor skills to complete paralysis, specialty care as well as physical, occupational or speech therapy is often required. Because a stroke will affect each senior in a different way, it is important that the care they receive is not only provided by an experienced caregiver, but is tailored to their individual needs. Based on the severity of the stroke, our Care Managers will meet with the senior, their family, doctor and physical therapists. After a comprehensive consultation, our Care Managers will be able to determine the level of care and services required. We always want to make certain that our clients and their families are comfortable, and will tailor care plans to physical needs, as well as personal preferences, making sure the care provided is always in line with the family’s values and morals.
