Specialist stroke care to support treatment & recovery
Stroke Care at Home

A stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) can have a life-changing impact on a person.

Having the right care to help you recover and rehabilitate is invaluable.

Stroke Care at Home

The impact of a stroke can be very stressful and take a toll on all the family both physically and mentally. A stroke comes with no warning. We will find the best care to help your loved one and work closely with your family and GP to develop a stroke care plan.

There are two main causes of stroke:

  • A blocked artery (ischemic stroke) or
  • A leaking or bursting of a blood vessel (hemorrhagic stroke).

Some people may have only a temporary disruption of blood flow to the brain, known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA), that doesn’t cause lasting symptoms.

Tailored stroke after care

A stroke can cause temporary or permanent disability. After stroke care needs to be tailored to the specific complications that may arise these include:


Mobility issues

Our carers can help with rehabilitation exercises and adapting to new movement patterns. Walking may become more of a shuffle. Strengthening, stretching and balancing exercises can all help.


Pain and numbness

Our carers can help with adapting to this. Often everyday tasks become too difficult and learning to adapt to different ways of moving is vital.

Difficulty talking or swallowing

A carer can help your loved one follow a speech therapy plan and help with mealtimes.


Emotional problems

Personality changes , people may become withdrawn after a stroke and the right sensitive carer can help reduce depression and loneliness.

At TrustonTap we ensure your loved one gets all the physical and emotional support they require to continue living at home.
