Case Study: Providing Jennifer with stroke rehabilitation at home

Our client

Jennifer is 74 years old and lives alone in her house in Sussex. Until recently, she was very independent; regularly attending her local bowls club and the Women’s Institute. Four months ago, Jennifer suffered a major stroke. She was swiftly admitted to hospital and given emergency treatment and specialist care, which may have saved her life. After six weeks in hospital, she was desperate to return home but she was unable to stand without assistance, couldn’t walk and her speech was hard to understand, which led her family to contact The Good Care Group.

Our stroke recovery care service

The Good Care Group provided a team of two specialist stroke recovery carers, both trained by the Stroke Association. The care team  liaised with therapists to design a menu that was easier to swallow as well as being delicious. They also worked with physiotherapists, helping rebuild strength over a period of time.

Our success

Six weeks after coming home from hospital Jennifer could walk, speak more clearly, and felt more confident. Jennifer has made fantastic progress in her stroke recovery, helped by the commitment and expertise of her professional home care team.
