"I have treated patients residing at Best Personal Care for over a decade. I have been impressed by their dedication and commitment to the welfare of their residents. They provide more than housing and food. They give their clients a structure where they can thrive in, in a predictable environment. They give them a frame of reference that can help them succeed, given their handicaps. All in all, its been an excellent placement choice."

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.
“At UofL Hospital, we continually strive for excellence in the acute treatment of stroke patients,” said Kerri Remmel, M.D., Ph.D., medical director of the UofL Hospital Stroke Center and chair of the UofL Department of Neurology. “U Care adds the vital step of thoroughly programmed follow-up with stroke patients to ensure they continue recovery, avoid unnecessary readmission to the hospital and prevent a second stroke.”
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.)

Team approach. Mayo Clinic doctors trained in blood vessel and brain conditions (cerebrovascular neurologists), blood vessel conditions and imaging (endovascular surgical neuroradiologists), blood vessel conditions and brain surgery (vascular neurosurgeons), physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatrists), emergency medicine and other areas work together to promptly diagnose and treat people who have had strokes, and to prevent strokes in people who are at risk of strokes.
