An Introduction to Stroke

A stroke occurs when blood supply to parts of our brain is reduced or interrupted. This deprives our brain tissue of the nutrients and oxygen necessary for its survival. Within minutes, the cells start to die, impeding our brain functions. 

To minimise the impact of stroke, being able to spot the early signs of stroke and getting prompt treatment is crucial.

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability

Every day, there are 26 new stroke cases and this number is expected to rise with our ageing population. While the mortality rate of stroke has decreased considerably, stroke remains the fourth most common cause of death in Singapore.

Furthermore, 63% of stroke patients experience some form of disability at 3 months, making it the leading cause of disability among adults.

Caring for a loved one recovering from a stroke

Strokes often strike suddenly and without warning, and the impact on each individual varies depending on the part of the brain affected by the interrupted blood supply and the extent of damage to the brain.

The road to recovery can be tough mentally and physically, especially after losing the ability to speak, eat and/or move about. Having the support of a loved one can be especially important during this time. Learn more about how you can help your loved one recover better from a stroke as a caregiver here.

Embark on your road to recovery with Homage

We have walked the journey with numerous families and their loved one with stroke. One of the families we supported is Mdm Chua and her daughter PG Lim.

When Mdm Chua suffered a stroke and then a fall, her daughter PG took a year off work to help her recover and managed to balance work and caring for her mother with assistance from Homage.

Our Care Professionals are experienced with caring for individuals with stroke and undergo training to better understand, support and care for you and your loved one.
