If you're seeking your doctor's advice during a scheduled appointment, your doctor will evaluate your risk factors for stroke and heart disease. Your discussion will focus on avoiding these risk factors, such as not smoking or using illegal drugs. Your doctor also will discuss lifestyle strategies or medications to control high blood pressure, cholesterol and other stroke risk factors.
Best Personal Care is a wonderful facility. I put my father at this facility 10 months ago. The staff at Best Personal Care communicated consistently and helped my father to become independent again. They made sure that he took all his meds and took him to his doctor appointments. They also were very helpful in making sure that he had continuous activities to help keep his mind occupied. I highly recommend Best Personal Care. Arnie and Anglelina are very caring people. My father has been to many other facilities that were not near as proactive with his care. Best Personal Care lives up to their name and made a big difference in helping my father to get better and be able to live independently again.

A local example of the life-saving stroke care making a difference was a man who came to Marshall North ER in June with weakness and impaired speech. Tests showed the patient to be a candidate for teleneurology and possible tPA – a clot busting medication. Through the teleneurology system – which links rural hospitals with a neurologist at Huntsville Hospital using a computer monitor – the medical team determined tPA should be administered. The patient received the drug and, after close monitoring, was transferred to Huntsville Hospital.
Marshall Medical’s Stroke Network team includes the physicians and staff of the ED who are the first line of treatment once a patient enters the ED with stroke symptoms. Alongside them are Stroke Coordinator Ken Atchison, and Quality Data Analyst-RN Allison Trammell who work to promote the evidence-based guidelines and assist the ED to ensure they are familiar with any new updates. This team’s effort in promoting evidence-based guidelines and providing the very best treatment possible to patients coming in to the ED is worthy of recognition.

Your doctor will check your blood pressure and use a stethoscope to listen to your heart and to listen for a whooshing sound (bruit) over your neck (carotid) arteries, which may indicate atherosclerosis. Your doctor may also use an ophthalmoscope to check for signs of tiny cholesterol crystals or clots in the blood vessels at the back of your eyes.
Mayo Clinic's world-renowned stroke teams include doctors trained in blood vessel and brain conditions (cerebrovascular neurologists), brain blood vessel imaging (endovascular surgical neuroradiologists), blood vessel brain surgery (vascular neurosurgeons), physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatrists), emergency medicine, and other subspecialists who work together to provide exactly the care you need.
(which was his same attitude in regards to the other facilities) almost a year later, he now considers Best Personal Care his home away from home! The staff is professional and genuine whose main focus is the client's well being. They are efficient in communicating with us while taking the necessary measures to establishing and adjusting our son's curriculum as he thrives.. We highly recommend BPCF to anyone faced with the difficult decision to place a loved one in someone else's care. Thank you Arnie and Angelina for all you do for our son. He is happy and making great strides and we finally have peace of mind.
The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research offers an elite center for stroke rehabilitation that combines medical and nursing care with counseling and support, not only for your loved one but also for you and your family. All patient rooms include modern equipment that is specifically designed to offer comfort and functionality. Your friend or family member can benefit from individual or group therapy sessions, physical and occupational therapy, speech therapy, and periodical evaluations from highly trained specialists. Patients can also take part in occupational therapy, a form of therapy that helps patients regain skills and functions necessary in getting them back to work. Each type of therapy is individualized to fit the needs of the patient. One important service offered by TIRR is an outpatient rehabilitation program that will help your loved one continue recovery after leaving the facility.
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.

Geriatric care managers (GCMs) are usually social workers, psychologists, nurses, gerontologists or others with training and experience in various aspects of elder care. Geriatric care managers not only assess a senior’s needs, they can also handle crises (such as an emergency hospitalization), help place the senior in a residential care community, help resolve family conflicts, locate community resources or fill in for family caregivers at doctor’s appointments, among other services.
The best post rehabilitation center I have seen in the country is center for Neuro Recovery. My father went there completely enfeeble and in a wheelchair when he started and left walking after nine months of strengthening and functional movement exercises. I have never seen such a state of the art facility and knowledge-based staff. If this was going to happen to another family member again, I know I would go back to this amazing facility.

For medical help such as changing dressings, providing post-surgical rehabilitation, overseeing medications, aiding with physical therapy, or helping with mobility devices, you'll want home health care provided by caregiver who's gone through training and is being supervised by a nurse. (Keep in mind that licensing and certification requirements vary by state; you'll want to ask lots of questions about your caregiver's qualifications.)
Fast recognition and treatment can not only make the difference between life and death, but it can also decrease long-term disabilities. To develop a streamlined response to potential stroke patients, the American Heart Association developed the Stroke Chain of Survival. The chain involves eight links or steps to be taken by patients, family members, prehospital and emergency room personnel in caring for stroke patients.
Companion helpers are hands off, non-medical helpers that help those in need by assisting with activities of daily living (ADLs) in order to continue living life from the comfort of home. Companion help can include meal preparation, assistance with light housekeeping, laundry, accompaniment to outings and appointments, socialization, medication reminders and assistance with morning and bedtime routine. The specific needs are set up between you and the individual that you choose to hire after evaluating resumes and other materials.
