The Ninth Five-Year Plan included policies in an attempt to care for the elderly left without children as caretakers.[30] A Senior Health Facilities Fund has been established in each district.[30] The Senior Citizens Health Facilities Program Implementation Guideline, 2061BS provides medical facilities to the elderly, and to those that are poverty stricken, free medicine and health care in all districts.[30] In its yearly budget, the government has planned to fund free health care to all heart and kidney patients older than 75.[30] Unfortunately, many of these plans are overly ambitious, which has been recognized by the Nepali government.[30] Nepal is a developing nation and may not be able to fund all of these programs after the development of an Old Age Allowance, or OAA. OAA provides a monthly stipend to all citizens over 70 and widows over 60.[30]
When a patient exhibits signs of a stroke, a first responder is immediately sent to the patient’s bedside, whether in the emergency room or on a nursing floor, to assess the patient. This begins a series of rapid activities, including lab work and CT imaging, to provide our emergency physicians and/or neurologist with the proper diagnostic information to determine which interventions are best based on each individual case. The physicians already on the case may bring other specialists, such as neurosurgeons or neuro-interventionalists, into the case depending on the course of treatment.
These documents have been provided to the American Heart Association by the below hospitals as examples of stroke best practices.  These documents are available only to give you an idea of how some hospitals might use discharge stroke best practices. By including this document on its Web site, the American Heart Association does not represent that these documents are complete, accurate or efficacious, or that it follows all of the American Heart Association guidelines for secondary and primary prevention of cardiovascular events or stroke. Hospitals should design their own stroke best practices based on their own procedures and professional experience.

The overall goal of stroke care is to minimize brain injury and optimize the individual’s recovery. Preferential transport to stroke-capable centers has been shown to improve outcomes. Stroke centers are equipped with resources often not available at smaller community hospitals. The presence of specialists, including neurologists and stroke care specialists, multidisciplinary teams experienced in stroke care, advanced imaging modalities, and other therapeutic options make transport to stroke centers the most suitable option. The goal of the stroke team, emergency physician, or other experts should be to assess the individual with suspected stroke within ten minutes.
Care for the elderly in England has traditionally been funded by the state, but it is increasingly rationed according to a joint report by the King's Fund and Nuffield Trust as the cost of care to the nation rises. People who have minimal savings or other assets are provided with care either in the home (from visiting carers) or by moving to a residential care home or nursing home. However, research by the Live-in Care Hub indicates that 97% of older people do not want to move into a care home[28] so they often struggle without support on their own. This is true for both those who will receive state funding for their care and those who will have to pay for it themselves out of savings or by selling other assets. Larger numbers of old people need help because of an aging population and medical advances, but less is being paid out by the government to help them. A million people who need care get neither formal nor informal help.[29]

The form of care provided for older adults varies greatly among countries and is changing rapidly.[2] Even within the same country, regional differences exist with respect to the care for older adults.[3] However, it has been observed globally, older people consume the most health expenditures out of any other age group,[4] observation that shows comprehensive eldercare may be very similar. One must also account for an increasingly large proportion older people worldwide, especially in developing nations, as continued pressure is put on limiting fertility and decreasing family size.[5]

“Mechanical thrombectomy is a treatment used to remove a large blood clot from inside a blood vessel in a patient’s brain,” explains Dr John Thornton. “Before this was developed, Irish patients were receiving clot-busting drugs to help dissolve the clot instead of pulling the clot out but what became evident was that these drugs didn’t work as well when there was a large blockage in the brain. Thrombectomy provides the greatest chance of patient recovery from large blockages which cause the most devastating strokes.”

If your loved one needs medical care that requires medical expertise, you'll need a home health agency to find a registered nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN), or advanced practical nurse (APN). Nurses have the skills necessary to change catheters, give postsurgical care, treat wounds or bedsores, and oversee medical equipment. If your loved one is recovering from surgery or an accident, a home health care nurse may be covered by Medicare or other insurance; nurses usually charge $25-$50/hour.

Blood tests. You may have several blood tests, which tell your care team how fast your blood clots, whether your blood sugar is abnormally high or low, whether critical blood chemicals are out of balance, or whether you may have an infection. Managing your blood's clotting time and levels of sugar and other key chemicals will be part of your stroke care.

A less restrictive alternative to legal incapacity is the use of "advance directives," powers of attorney, trusts, living wills and healthcare directives. The person who has such documents in place should have prepared them with their attorney when that person had capacity. Then, if the time comes that the person lacks capacity to carry out the tasks laid out in the documents, the person they named (their agent) can step in to make decisions on their behalf. The agent has a duty to act as that person would have done so and to act in their best interest.

Thailand has observed global patterns of an enlarging elderly class: as fertility control is encouraged and medical advances are made, births shrink and people live longer.[5] The Thai government is noticing and concerned about this trend, but tends to let families care for their elderly members rather than create extraneous policies for them.[31] As of 2011, there are only 25 state-sponsored homes for the elderly, with no more than a few thousand members of each home.[31] Such programs are largely run by volunteers and are services tend to be limited, considering there is not always a guarantee care will be available. Private care is tough to follow, often based on assumptions. Because children are less likely to care for their parents, private caretakers are in demand.[31] Volunteer NGOs are available but in very limited quantities.[31]

An MRI can detect brain tissue damaged by an ischemic stroke and brain hemorrhages.
