Stroke Survivors Face Many Obstacles During Their Recovery
Each stroke is unique and has a different effect on the stroke victim. However, most commonly a stroke results in weakness or even complete loss of muscle control in certain areas, making it almost impossible for the patient to go through their daily routine. Brain damage can also occur, resulting in memory loss, altered senses, difficulty with verbal communication and confusion. Most seniors who have survived a stroke require daily care and need assistance eating, bathing, and even moving from one room to another. Occupational, physical and/or speech therapy is also an essential part of recovery, allowing the stroke survivor to regain their abilities that were lost due to the stroke.
