Hello!

STROKE & BRAIN INJURY CARE

Living in the aftermath of a stroke, traumatic brain injury or other neurological condition has far-reaching impact on physical, cognitive, and emotional capabilities.  Mundane activities such as speaking, swallowing, or breathing may be compromised. And physical and mental abilities may have to be relearned.

Skilled nursing care and physical rehabilitation are key factors in optimizing a successfully recovery at home to maximize long-term independence.  Early rehabilitation has been shown to enhance recovery and minimize functional disability. The length of rehabilitation depends on the severity of stroke, brain injury-related deficits, motivation, skilled care professionals and support network.

Tri-County Home Care of Florida’s care team of nurses and aides provide compassionate in-home skilled care that helps ease the transition from a hospital stay to independently recover in the comfort and familiarity of home.

What Is A Stroke?

A stroke generally results in brain injury that creates physical and cognitive deficits. Early rehabilitation has been shown to enhance recovery and minimize functional disability.  The length of rehabilitation, of course, will depend on the severity of stroke, brain injury-related deficits, motivation, skilled care professionals and support network.

What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?

Brain injuries are caused by either internal or external factors. Internal factors include stroke, lack of oxygen, tumor, hypoxia, meningitis or encephalitis. External factors — often called traumatic brain injuries (TBI)  — are caused by penetrating objects (bullets); a fall or car crash resulting in significant head trauma; or when the brain is shaken within the skull, an injury often associated with sports or high-energy explosions.

Rehabilitative therapy for Stroke & Brain Injury

Recovering from a stroke, traumatic brain injury or other neurological condition can be challenging physically, cognitively, and emotionally leaving survivors frustrated with the recovery process and challenged by the ability to resume their normal lives, especially seniors who may already face declining health. 

Rehabilitation can help re-establish independence and improve quality of life. Researchers have found that people who participate in a focused rehabilitation program perform exceedingly better than those who don’t have rehabilitation.
