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.

Top questions about Stroke Rehabilitation
Does stroke shorten life expectancy?
Studies have shown that even minor strokes may reduce our life expectancy.
How do you care for a stroke patient?
There are many ways we can support a loved one recovering from a stroke. From educating ourselves and managing finances, to making home modifications and supporting with daily activities, being a family caregiver to someone recovering from stroke is no mean feat.
Sometimes, seeking professional care support can be beneficial, not only for the caregiver but also for the care recipient to receive quality care. Learn more about how you can support a loved one post-stroke here.
Can a stroke patient make a full recovery?
Post-stroke recovery differs for everyone. While some may be able to recover fully, others may have long-term or lifelong disabilities. Recovery time may also vary from weeks, months to even years.
What does stroke rehabilitation involve?
Stroke rehabilitation aims to help us relearn skills that may have been lost. Depending on the type of stroke and the extent of damange to our brain, different forms of therapy may be required.

What our customers say
Right from the start from signing up for an account, to making a booking on the app, to the confirmation of a Care Asst and to the whole visit concluding, its all a seamless and worry free process. Loved this service and would recommend it to anyone who requires the extra pair of hands and legs
Have been using this for a year to help my grandfather who frequently gets aspiration pneumonia and has difficulty leaving the house. The app is so easy to use, and the cherry on top is the wonderful service behind the app. Had some difficulty finding a doctor recently and Hakim called me back personally twice to ensure a doctor was found. Thank you so much, cannot recommend this app more.
Very responsive app, with options to chat with caregiver, review reports and contact support team for assistance.
My mum’s helper was hospitalised suddenly and I needed urgent help to take care of my mum who has advanced dementia. Homage was able able to find caregivers for my mum within a very short notice. The caregivers possessed the skill sets that I had requested and were of great help to me in my time of need. Thank you Homage!
Homage CP render their professional service to my dad who is a dialysis patient. CP assigned to wheel my dad to & fro from Dialysis Center within 300m walking distance. They are capable to load & unload my dad from wheelchair independently. They are friendly too. I'm looking forward to their next visit.
Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
Response from Homage is fast. And the physiotherapist assigned is professional in assessing and guiding my mom in her session.
