Finding a neuro care program in the home care world can be tough.

A family or a loved one trying to care for a stroke survivor often experiences significant challenges that can be quite draining of time, energy, and other resources. Having a home care company with specialized training step-in and assist can be a life-changing experience for both stroke survivors and their families. Nest & Care is one of those companies, providing not only home care but also specialized care for stroke survivors. Katharina Villanueva, RN of Nest &Care is a Speaker on this subject for the Montgomery County Stroke Association (MCSA) Stroke Survivor and Stroke Caregiver Support Group on June 11 and July 2, 2019. She will share her knowledge, experience, and informed-advice, to deliver real value to this upstanding organization and help improve the lifestyles of local stroke survivors and those who care for them.
“Seeking advice and help from someone with specialized training can be helpful to families and provide significant benefits,” commented Villanueva. “Recently, during my initial assessment of a potential client, not knowing the location of the stroke, I was able to ascertain which area of the brain was affected simply by asking the right questions This helped me to educate my client about the functional limitations brought by this particular stroke and what our organization can do to help manage it. This is just one example of how working with Nest & Care providers, rather than a regular home health caregiver without Neuro experience, can be very valuable.”
Villanueva is very much looking forward to speaking at and answering any questions at the two MCSA meetings.
Nest & Care coordinates their activities with any physical therapist, occupational therapist, or speech therapists who may also be working with the stroke survivor. They all are happy to incorporate in their neuro program an integrated wellness program that provides a customized plan for reaching each patient’s optimal wellness. The wellness program addresses five key areas, namely Safety, Physical Exercises, Nutrition, Mental Exercise, and Socialization.
