After-stroke care at home
Supporting you as you recover and readjust
Care to enhance your quality of life
Regaining independence is key to recovering from a stroke, and there is nowhere better to achieve this than in the comfort of your own home. Being somewhere familiar whilst you practise the skills which are crucial to your rehabilitation increases confidence and reduces your anxiety.
The after-effects of a stroke or mini stroke can be more than just physical, and they can be long term and life changing. Strokes can occur to people at all stages of life and can have a very sudden and devastating impact on all involved.
Caring effectively for someone who has suffered a stroke requires a great understanding of the condition and the challenges it brings. Specialist skills are often also required, to help support them with their changed needs, so we give our carers the expert training they need to be able to provide the after-stroke care that gives our clients the best quality of life.

The world of care can often seem daunting and complex – we’re here to be help you through it.
Dedicated, around-the-clock after-stroke care
One in four stroke survivors will go on to have a repeat attack in the next five years, and the 30 days following the initial stroke are the peak time for this to occur. Our expert carers are trained to spot the early signs of a stroke, including Ischaemic, TIA (mini stroke) and haemorrhagic conditions. Having a one-on-one, live-in carer gives you the reassurance that nothing is left to chance, and warning signs such as subtle differences in reactions and behaviour can be monitored and addressed early.
Christies Care will support you with a swift hospital discharge to allow you or your loved one to get home and start the rehabilitation journey as soon as possible. We will set up a one-to-one home care plan so your carer can follow the exact treatments, diet plans and other lifestyle changes that will support you or your loved one.
The physical and psychological after effects experienced by people who have had a stroke are usually addressed by a team of different specialists. Our highly-trained carers can support you with a range of expert care skills when you are being cared for at home, day and night, as you need it.
We train our live-in carers to support basic physio through professional instructions, and speech and language therapy following guidance from a professional. They also have a good understanding of anxiety and depression and most importantly, the patience and motivation to help you and your family adjust to the new circumstances following a stroke.
