Here’s what you need to know about stroke:
- It is one of the leading causes of adult disability in the U.S.
- It causes most of its victims to have trouble with mobility.
- It makes 25% of its victims experience a re-occurrence.
The above-mentioned facts only show how stroke patients are in dire need of constant assistance until they recover. For individuals experiencing a stroke, their blood vessels in the brain either clot or burst. This happens when the brain cells lack enough oxygen. For those who have experienced such a disease, it is more likely they lose significant muscle control and memory, which makes it challenging for them to live their lives daily.
Now, we want to know a few things about your loved one. Is your loved one having a hard time speaking? Having difficulties in accomplishing tasks? Or perhaps detaching themselves from the people they love and care about?
Stroke affects the physical, speech, and behavioral ability of a person. In terms of physical, they may experience paralysis, vision problems, muscle tightness, muscle weakness, fatigue, and more. On the other hand, when it comes to speech, they may experience difficulty speaking, lose literacy and math skills, and have difficulty understanding concepts. Lastly, in terms of behavior, stroke patients may lose their pride, become forgetful, and feel constantly anxious, irritable, and angry.
