Frequently Asked Questions
Where does post-stroke recovery take place?
Stroke survivors can be cared for in their own homes following a hospital stay. A private nurse can be sent to your home or a place where the patient will feel most comfortable to provide individualized support and care.
What are the benefits of hiring a private nurse for in-home stroke recovery?
In-home private nurses can assist in ensuring that the client is properly cared for as they transition home. Nursing care can be tailored specifically to the individual’s needs and may include tube feedings, tracheostomy care, or other medical services.
How much does stroke care cost?
The cost of hiring a private nurse for stroke recovery care will vary depending on the level of assistance you need and the total hours of care. It will also depend on the nurse’s licensure, experience, and training.
Do you accept insurance?
At this time, we are private pay only. However, we do work with our clients to assist in reimbursement from both primary health and long term care insurance. Please contact your individual insurance carrier to confirm eligibility.
Do I need a doctor’s authorization?
Yes, a doctor’s order is required to hire a private nurse for in-home stroke recovery care. An assessment by a nurse does not require a doctor’s approval, but any form of care does. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of a stroke, contact 9-1-1. A private nurse is not able to help in an emergency. NurseRegistry services are for patients recovering from stroke.
