Have You or Someone You Love Suffered from a Heart Attack or Stroke?
Heart disease can be hereditary, or it can develop from unhealthy living, including eating a diet high in saturated or trans fats, smoking and little to no physical activity.
Heart disease can be preventable! Knowing how to take care of your body can help reduce the risk of developing serious risk of heart attack or stroke, amongst other conditions related to heart disease.
How can Retire-At-Home help?
If you’re reading this, then it’s very likely that you’re past the prevention stage, and now must face the aftermath of a stroke or heart attack.
Our caregivers and nurses at Retire-At-Home Halton know that it takes a lot of patience and work to regain some of the skills we take for granted, such as speech, mobility and cognitive skills.
Once your doctor makes a prognosis, Retire-At-Home can offer you a variety of home care services to assist you in rehabilitation and getting back to normal.
- Medication administration
- Vital signs monitoring
- Speech therapy
- Respite care
- Attendant care
- Catheter care
- Palliative care services
- Foot Care services also available
You may have noticed that Palliative care services are also included in the list above. This is never a pleasant topic to address, especially since most heart attacks or strokes occur before we can recognize the signs (learn about how to recognize the signs of heart attack and stroke here.) If, however, you have been given some tough news, Retire-At-Home can help make you comfortable, provide respite care, and manage your pain.
Please refer to our Palliative Care specialties page for more information.
