Returning Home After a Stroke
There is a lot of uncertainty following a stroke. It often takes time to see to what level of function a stroke victim will recover. Life has dramatically changed for the stroke victim and their family.
Caregivers by WholeCare can help. We have caregivers trained to help with post-stroke recovery both long-term and short-term. We’re happy to meet with you to create a care plan that helps with recovery after a stroke.
Some areas where we can help after a stroke include:
- Medication reminders
- Meal preparation and clean-up
- Light housekeeping
- Transportation to and from medical appointments
- Hygiene assistance
- Help dressing/undressing
- Transferring (getting into and out of bed, chairs, wheelchairs)
After Inpatient Surgery & Out patient Surgery
We offer an extensive range of post surgery home care options for clients . Whether you need help in your home with daily chores and meal preparation or more extensive help after knee or hip replacement, our compassionate and highly trained caregivers can help with your rehabilitation.
Often seniors and older adults spend time after surgery in short-term rehab or nursing facilities.
That’s not always the best solution. Some people recover better at home in their own surroundings.
But this can be difficult without help.
That’s where Caregivers by WholeCare can help. When you return home after surgery (in-patient or outpatient/day surgery), we can be there to help get you back into a routine and make sure you follow all after-surgery instructions.

Cancer patients who have had surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or some combination thereof, must typically cope with a variety of side effects for the duration of their treatment and sometimes beyond. In home care can help patients cope with some of the most common side effects such as fatigue and weakness, appetite loss, and memory or concentration problems.
A caregiver can tackle light housekeeping, laundry, meals and shopping as well as help with personal care such as bathing, dressing and toileting. Caregivers can also accompany patients to follow up appointments to provide transportation or even to take notes when a family member is not available.
