Disposition: Disposition is the last link in the chain of survival. This step in stroke care focuses on the continuing care of the stroke patient. It is recommended that patients be admitted to an intensive care unit or stroke unit within three hours of arrival in the ED. Continued monitoring of a stroke patient includes frequent assessment of neurological status and monitoring of glucose levels and vitals, as well as prevention of complications. Determining the cause of the stroke is also part of disposition.
Nurse practitioners (NP) are advanced practice registered nurses that manage acute and chronic medical conditions, both physical and mental, through history and physical exam and the ordering of diagnostic tests and medical treatments. NPs are qualified to diagnose medical problems, order treatments, perform advanced procedures, prescribe medications, and make referrals for a wide range of acute and chronic medical conditions within their scope of practice. Their education includes a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or other undergraduate degree, and requires a license as a registered nurse (RN) and experience as an RN in a health care setting. They must graduate from an accredited graduate (MSN) or doctoral (DNP) program and achieve a board certification.

A distinction is generally made between medical and non-medical care, the latter not being provided by medical professionals and much less likely to be covered by insurance or public funds. In the US, 67% of the one million or so residents in assisted living facilities pay for care out of their own funds.[38] The rest get help from family and friends and from state agencies. Medicare does not pay unless skilled-nursing care is needed and given in certified skilled nursing facilities or by a skilled nursing agency in the home. Assisted living facilities usually do not meet Medicare's requirements. However, Medicare pays for some skilled care if the elderly person meets the requirements for the Medicare home health benefit. [39]

Ischemic strokes are the most common. They occur when an artery is blocked and blood flow to the brain is stopped. Caused by build-ups of fatty deposits on the inside of an artery wall which then becomes completely clogged. Ischemic strokes account for eighty percent of all strokes suffered. Some ischemic strokes are preceded by stroke-like symptoms called transient ischemic attacks (TIAs). These may occur months before the stroke. The loss of vision in a TIA may be described as a feeling that a shade is being pulled down over your eyes. The symptoms are usually temporary and improve within 10 to 20 minutes.

Given the choice, most older adults would prefer to continue to live in their homes (aging in place).[15] Many elderly people gradually lose functioning ability and require either additional assistance in the home or a move to an eldercare facility.[15] The adult children of these elders often face a difficult challenge in helping their parents make the right choices.[16] Assisted living is one option for the elderly who need assistance with everyday tasks. It costs less than nursing home care but is still considered expensive for most people.[17] Home care services may allow seniors to live in their own home for a longer period of time.

Elderly care emphasizes the social and personal requirements of senior citizens who need some assistance with daily activities and health care, but who desire to age with dignity. It is an important distinction, in that the design of housing, services, activities, employee training and such should be truly customer-centered. It is also noteworthy that a large amount of global elderly care falls under the unpaid market sector.[1]
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.
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.
