Strokes & Neurological Injuries
According to the American Heart Association, about 700,000 people nationwide sustain a stroke annually – a statistic that translates into a stroke occurring every 45 seconds. Clearly, it is imperative that we find ways to reduce the incidence of stroke, control costs, and return those who sustained impairments as a result of stroke back to their productive lives. While Accord Services® can do little about prevention, it can address the latter – reducing costs and implementing effective ways to make a real difference for the people we serve.
As a company focused on durable, functional outcomes, Accord Services® is uniquely suited for working with clients who have sustained a stroke. And because stroke can occur in people of all ages – not just the elderly, as commonly believed – our approach is particularly beneficial for younger clients with families to raise, households to run, and careers to pursue.
The staff at Accord Services® has learned from experience that once a client has had a stroke, he or she wants one thing: to get their life back. Yet often, clients have difficulty understanding how they will get from A to Z. Our emphasis on functional goals not only breaks down treatment into manageable steps, but it also helps our clients jump-start recovery and prevent further deterioration of their health.
Accord Services® has a strong focus on family education. Like all catastrophic illnesses and injuries, a stroke has a ripple effect on the client’s family and can cause a shift in the family dynamic. Because expectations for recovery may not be in line with reality, we educate the client and family members and help them develop the coping resources and compensatory strategies to adjust to their new reality. The health of the family and the health of the client are so interconnected that both need to be a part of the treatment process.
Accord Services® has the resources and ability to implement an individualized program to get the patient back on their feet as quickly as possible. Our daily attendant care provides the support and help needed to continue with day-to-day activities while the patient regains their strength and functional movement.
A catastrophic injury is a serious, life-changing event often resulting in limitations and complications that last a lifetime. Catastrophic injuries include all types of injuries that occur suddenly and cause long-term or permanent injury. It is common for catastrophic injuries to damage the central nervous system, which may in turn damage other bodily systems. Catastrophic injuries like brain injuries and spinal cord injuries are serious, complex injuries that usually have long-term or life-long implications. Patients with catastrophic injuries will likely require long-term medical care, and may never be able to work again. In addition to the physical pain and emotional impact of catastrophic injuries, the financial consequences may be overwhelming. Accord Services® is the premier catastrophic injury home healthcare company. We are capable of assisting the highest complexity patients in the comforts of their home, all while managing their daily clinical needs as if the patient was still in a hospital setting. As a company specializing in catastrophic injury management, Accord Services® has established strategic alliances with trauma centers and rehabilitation hospitals, physicians, and physical therapy facilities to assist patients with many different types of injuries including:
Accord Services® provides unparalleled communication sources, including in-home video conferencing to keep families involved and even assist with a variety of home maintenance to ensure comfort and happiness.
