Behavior, memory, communication, and physical capabilities can all be impacted by stroke. When a loved one is first hospitalized immediately after a stroke, families usually step in to help supply information about the patient’s history and symptoms, check on treatments, convey patient care preferences, and generally serve as the connection between the hospital staff and the patient. You suddenly become the patient’s voice and chief advocate. As treatment progresses, you, as primary caregiver, also might be involved in choosing a rehabilitation (rehab) facility, coordinating home care services, providing transportation, housekeeping, and cooking, and communicating with physicians and rehab staff. As time goes on and continuing deficits persist, you also may be dealing with the patient’s depression, physical care needs, coordinating home care and occupational, speech, or physical therapy, facilitating communication if there is speech impairment, and providing mental and physical health.
