Approximately 50 million people in the United States suffer from high blood pressure, or hypertension. Shockingly, nearly 30 percent do not know their blood pressure is higher than normal levels. Hypertension puts people at risk of heart disease, stroke, aneurysm, kidney failure, and more. Hypertension can worsen one’s quality of life, making it difficult to complete the daily tasks necessary to care for themselves and their homes.

Hypertension can cause a stroke by producing blood clots or causing the brain’s blood vessels to narrow, leak or burst. Blood flow is restricted so oxygen and nutrients are kept from the brain, resulting in a stroke. A stroke can affect the body in many ways, causing mobility and balance problems, fatigue, communication issues and memory loss, difficulty swallowing, continence issues, and other problems. Following a stroke, patients may require part-time or full-time care if they will be returning home to ensure their health and safety, as well as to promote recovery.

Stroke and Hypertension Home Care

The caregiving staff of Independent Life Home Care is skilled in assisting clients who have hypertension or who have suffered a stroke with their daily needs. Home health services include:

• Mobility assistance and fall prevention
• Continence and bathing assistance
• Light housekeeping and laundry service
• Meal planning and preparation
• Facilitating in-home exercise routines
• Transportation to and from appointments
• Running errands, such as grocery shopping
• Cognitive stimulation
• Assistance eating
• Respite care for family caregivers

Recovery from a stroke can be aided by the comfortable environment of home, and we aim to make every client as comfortable as possible by providing flexible, customized care planning provided by caregivers who serve as a positive force in the lives of our clients. Our part-time home care or 24-hour home care services are available throughout the Las Vegas area and can be scheduled promptly when the need arises.

  • When selecting a home care agency to work with your loved one, it is important that your family be comfortable with their caregiver.

  • My mother always loved chatting with her caregiver from Independent Life. She was a little uneasy at first about having someone come into her home, but quickly grew to enjoy the companionship and professionalism. Independent Life’s caregivers are really top notch!

  • After being admitted to the hospital for so long, I just didn’t feel ready to be on my own yet. Independent Life connected me with caregivers who provided the home care I needed to manage my recovery and keep my house in order. I welcomed having someone to chat with regularly, and felt safer knowing someone was there when I was not yet back to my best self. I’d certainly recommend their home care services to anyone facing a lengthy recovery.

  • Dad really struggled to stay active after Mom passed, I think he felt a bit burdened by all he had to do. His caregiver stepped in to assist with household chores and to help him with his needs, and I think that made quite a difference in improving his quality of life. That companionship and mental stimulation seemed to help him carry on, doing the things he loved.

  • I’ve always been independent, but I’m a realist as well. I recognized I was having trouble with certain things, so I got to work searching for a solution which would help me stay healthy, happy, and in the Las Vegas home I love. I contracted senior care services with Independent Life Home Care, and was able to choose the services I need. It’s great having someone to help me with the tasks that have become difficult, and I also welcome the conversation and company of my caregiver each week.

  • When my mom was sick, it was helpful to have a caregiver available to come in and assist me with the day to day housekeeping as well as provide home health assistance. I really feel that Independent Life Home Care made that time much more manageable for our family.

  • If you are caring for a loved one at home, don’t forget that you need time to care for yourself, too! Respite care is a must so that you can take care of your needs. I trust Independent Life to care for my son when I have important appointments to attend, and when I need time to recharge.

  • I cannot thank Independent Life Home Care enough for the compassionate hospice care they provided during my husband’s final days. It was a tremendous comfort to have someone dependable to rely on so that I could spend those last moments with him.
