PLYMOUTH — May is recognized globally as Stroke Awareness Month, and Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health is taking this opportunity to educate the community about the importance of stroke prevention, recognition and recovery. As a leading provider of home-based healthcare services, Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health is dedicated to raising awareness about strokes and offering specialized care to help individuals recover in the comfort of their own homes.
Stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted or reduced, leading to the sudden loss of brain function. It is a leading cause of disability and death worldwide. A stroke happens in America every 40 seconds, and someone dies of it every four minutes.
Recognizing the significance of stroke prevention and recovery, Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health employs a team of highly skilled and compassionate healthcare professionals, including nurses, occupational therapists, and physical therapists, who are experienced in providing expert care and support to stroke patients. These professionals play a vital role in helping individuals regain their independence, improve their quality of life, and enhance their overall wellbeing.
"Our dedicated team at Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health understands the challenges faced by stroke survivors and their families," said Danielle Paquette-Horne, executive director at Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health. "We aim to raise awareness about stroke prevention and provide comprehensive, personalized care to stroke patients in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes. Our nurses, occupational therapists, and physical therapists work collaboratively to develop customized treatment plans that address the unique needs of each individual, helping them regain their strength, mobility, and independence."
Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health offers a wide range of services to support stroke patients during their recovery journey. These include skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medication management, pain management, emotional support, and caregiver education. By delivering these services directly to patients' homes, Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health ensures convenience, comfort, and personalized attention throughout the recovery process.
During Stroke Awareness Month, Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health encourages everyone to educate themselves and their loved ones about the warning signs of stroke. Prompt recognition and immediate medical attention can significantly improve outcomes for stroke patients. Remember to think "FAST" and look for the following signs:
• Face drooping: Does one side of the face droop or feel numb?
• Arm weakness: Is one arm weak or numb? Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
• Speech difficulty: Is speech slurred or hard to understand? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence.
• Time to call emergency services: If any of these symptoms are present, call emergency services immediately.
By raising awareness about stroke prevention, recognizing the signs of stroke, and highlighting the importance of home-based care, Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health aims to make a positive impact on the lives of stroke survivors and their families.
