South Tampa’s Leading Provider of In-Home Stroke Care
When recovering from a stroke, seniors need the right level of support so they can start therapy sooner, regain independence faster, and avoid doing more than they should too soon. Families who are unable to provide the right level of care often express concern for how their loved one will adapt to life at home and remain safe throughout the recovery process. Professional in-home stroke care offers a solution.
At Home Care Assistance of South Tampa, FL, our stroke recovery programs offer non-medical support right at home. Our compassionate and highly trained caregivers have expertise in understanding the limitations often caused by a stroke. With patience and empathy, they gain the trust of seniors and quickly become an important part of their support system. Having them in the home gives seniors a listening ear, guiding hand, and the right level of encouragement, supervision, and assistance.
Stroke Care Designed to Promote Independence as Early as Possible
Most improvements following a stroke occur within the first six months. During this time, it is important to carefully develop a care plan that meets the needs of the senior, including providing assurance that he or she can get to medical appointments, meet with therapists, and maintain new medication routines.

Flexible Stroke Care Can Be Adjusted When Improvements and Setbacks Occur

High-Quality, Preventive Stroke Care
Reducing the chance of hospital readmission after a stroke is crucial to your senior’s well-being. With our in-home stroke care services, you can rest assured your senior will be safe and well cared for when they return home.
Should your senior show signs of a health issue, your caregiver will notify you right away. You’ll have peace of mind knowing your caregiver is there to identify problems and remove safety hazards to reduce the risk of hospitalization.
Caregivers play a critical role throughout a senior’s stroke recovery starting from day one. We hire only the best caregivers who provide a depth of compassion and experience. To ensure our caregivers possess these qualities, we have them go through extensive background and reference checks, a personality test, and a physical exam. Once we hire them, we have them insured and bonded for our clients’ additional protection.
We also take the time to match your senior with a caregiver who shares their interests and specializes in stroke care. Our caregivers develop lasting relationships with seniors and their families, and the close connection makes in-home care enjoyable for everyone.
