Looking for a specialist stoke care home?
Finding good residential care for your loved one is a daunting task and many factors often need to be considered before a decision is made. If they have conditions such as dementia, Parkinson’s or have suffered a stroke, then this should include the capability of the home to provide extra nursing attention.

Country Lodge care home in Worthing provides specialist care for stroke victims. Our staff would welcome the opportunity to show you around our home and demonstrate the services that we can offer.
Why do those who have suffered a stroke require specialist care?
Strokes affect people in many different ways. The location where the stroke has occurred as well as the severity determines the extent of brain damage. Minor symptoms can include temporary weakness of an arm or leg, whereas a more severe stroke can be life-changing and will undoubtedly require a more ‘hands-on’ approach. This may include assistance with tasks such as washing or dressing, eating meals and providing equipment to make daily life more comfortable.
This life-changing experience usually results in physical and mental challenges. If your loved one needs a specialist stroke care home, we at Country Lodge would be delighted to work with you to create a bespoke care plan that supports all of their needs which could include:
- Muscle, joint, and nerve problems
- Thinking and planning
- Depression and anxiety
- Frustration at their new circumstances
Providing stroke-specific care
As a specialist stroke care home, we provide the following specific care:
- Qualified staff – To ensure our guests are properly cared for, we have a team of specialist qualified nurses.
- Freshly cooked food – To promote a healthy lifestyle, we serve healthy and freshly cooked meals using locally sourced ingredients every day. Homemade cakes are served at tea-time and residents can request whatever they like for breakfast, at whatever time they prefer. Where helpful, our expert carers can assist residents in eating safely.
- Physical activities – To encourage exercise and mobility, we motivate our guests to participate in low-impact activities like bowling, spending time in our beautiful gardens or days out to visit the surrounding areas.
- Social connections – Social interaction and simply feeling connected to others helps ease the feeling of depression and isolation that are common after strokes. At Country Lodge, we ensure that our residents have plenty of time to socialise, whether it is with other residents, the nurses, or family and friends, everyone is welcome for a visit and can spend as much time in our home as they’d like.
- Physiotherapy – Sessions often take place at our home and can help stroke patients regain as much movement as possible. Regaining partial use of the hands and arms enables them to accomplish everyday tasks like dressing and feeding, whilst regaining any movement or strength in the legs can help improve their mobility and sense of balance.
