A stroke occurs when blood supply is reduced or cut off to part of the brain. The severity and effects of a stroke vary from person to person. Strokes can cause temporary or permanent paralysis to one side of the body, problems with speech and language, vision problems, behavioral changes, and memory problems. Aphasia, the loss of the ability to understand or express speech, is a common symptom of a stroke. Speech therapy is the most effective way to treat aphasia and regain the ability to communicate effectively.

This video discusses what home health care is. Dr. Alicia Arbaje talks about how home health care is beneficial in helping someone maintain the most independence, while in the comfort of their own home.
Is it no longer safe for your loved one to live on their own? Many families struggle with the decision of the best living situation for their aging family members. This can be a very troubling process. Both home care and assisted living facilities can improve a person’s life and well-being tremendously. Home care is the best alternate to assisted living facilities for several reasons.
As people age, they become less independent. Home care enables people to receive the best care, while maintaining the most independence. They can make many of their own decisions and still live their lives how they choose to. They are able to plan when family and friends can visit and are not restricted by visiting hours.
Improves Well-Being and Quality of Life
It is very beneficial to receive professional care in the comfort of your home. Home care allows people to receive assistance with daily tasks, while also letting them remain in a setting that they are familiar with. Feelings of depression and loneliness are typically decreased with home care.
When people remain in their homes and receive care, they can maintain their same daily routine. Most of the time, the person will be receiving care from the same caregiver. This allows them to build a relationship with their caregiver.
Most of the time people recovering in their own homes will recover faster and have fewer complications than in an assisted living facility. They are also less likely to catch a contagious illness or infection in their own home.
Home care offers all these advantages and more. Family members will have a peace of mind knowing that their loved one is receiving care by trained professionals in the comfort of their home.
We believe that the home environment is the most comfortable place for patients and their families to recover from illness. Homecare is also highly effective to assist people from hospitalizations, surgery, and may delay or prevent a transition to a Nursing Home or Assisted Living facility. Home is the BEST place to support recovery from illness, injury, and to learn disease management. Our goal is to help you stay in the comfort of your home for as long as possible.
