Premium at Home Stroke Care Services for Seniors in South East Melbourne
A stroke can be an extremely challenging medical event to cope with and recover from; patients must simultaneously overcome physical, cognitive and emotional challenges and many stroke survivors report frustrations with the recovery process. In a recent survey of over 1,000 stroke survivors, over 40% felt somewhat or not very successful in meeting their rehabilitation goals.
Regardless of the severity of your stroke, it is critical to take a proactive and informed approach to your Stroke Care at home and often a caregiver can help ease the physical and emotional stress.
Stroke Care at Home

- Daily self-care activities
- Nutritious meal preparation
- Transportation for medical appointments and errands
Our Care givers can encourage and monitor participation in Home Exercise Program set up by their treating team. And assist with fitting and removal of aids like orthosis/braces/splints.
Hospital to Home
If you live out-of-state or are unable to visit, care for, and assist with a senior loved one’s hospital discharge following a stroke, trust our experienced stroke caregivers to be your eyes and ears and ensure your parent or family member’s safe transfer from hospital to home.
