Written by: Barbara Frazier, Stroke Survivor:
As a caregiver for someone who has had a stroke, you have a lot to do and suggestions for getting organized, saving time and helping the person you love and yourself through this challenging time.
This is a true story from a stroke patient. I can walk and get back and forth with minimal assistance. Sometimes I get times confused and friends help me get things straightened out in my brain. And I get dates confused about Dr. appointments and other appointments.
Clothing is hard to get on and sometimes you have to buy bigger clothes to be able to get clothes on the affected arm. Pants may have to be elastic waist to be able to fasten the clothes. The stroke patient gets easily frustrated when the patient can’t put their pants or coat and other clothing on at times.
