Stroke aftercare and support, completely tailored to you
Stroke aftercare doesn’t have to happen in unfamiliar surroundings. In fact, after 30 years of providing care in the home, we’ve helped many families get back on their feet after a stroke while staying in the comfort of their family home.
A stroke, or transient ischaemic attack (TIA), can have a life-changing impact on a person. But it doesn’t just impact the individual – it has effects on the entire family.
By providing nursing-led care at home, we’re helping families across the country to receive the support they need at home. With either round-the-clock live-in care or visiting care when you need it most, our carers are experienced in assisting stroke patients at home, affected by large vessel thrombosis, embolic and haemorrhagic strokes, to name a few.

Nursing-led expertise in stroke aftercare
Our stroke aftercare services are based entirely around your needs and delivered in the place you love the most. It’s the beauty of choosing home care with Helping Hands. Your local care specialist will work with you to build a care plan that’s entirely focused around your needs, your routines and your lifestyle. You’ll even get chance to choose your carer.
With stroke home care, people affected by such medical conditions can recover in surroundings they’re familiar with, with pets and loved ones around them. This can make the recuperation process quicker, especially as the home is also a good place for relearning skills and adapting to any physical limitations that may be present.
We will work closely with your family, district nurse, hospital, GP and other healthcare organisations to develop a stroke care plan that suits your needs. Your district nurse can also still attend to provide additional stroke support as needed.
We understand that asking for help can be a difficult step to take. But we’re here every step of the way – to walk you through the options for stroke care at home and finding the best care plan and support worker for you.
Call us today for an informal chat about the options. Or you can always request a callback and we will call you.

Specialist carers for stroke support
People are at the heart of everything we do at Helping Hands. Our friendly support workers, who are fully trained at our centre of excellence, all have a ‘can-do’ attitude – they’re encouraging and can provide a vast amount of medical support when required.
Whether it’s help with physiotherapy exercises, mobility or household tasks such as preparing meals and cleaning, our carers are trained to support as you require. And throughout the stroke rehabilitation process, you or your loved one will get all the motivational and emotional support needed to restore confidence.
Our stroke support workers can also help with sensitive personal care issues – from toileting and bathing to washing and continence care. As well as medical support, our carers are around to offer a listening ear – to share interests with the people they look after.
Helping Hands carers understand how important it is to communicate. And where communication is an issue, they’ll find a method that works for you, or your loved one.
