How Ninkatec helps stroke patients
Nursing support: Patients with stroke may experience difficulty in swallowing or urine elimination due to weakened muscle (paralysis). These patients may require feeding through nasogastric or PEG tubes, urinary catheters for their care. Having proper care support and caregivers equipped with the right skills and knowledge play a key role in post-stroke recovery. Ninkatec Team can assist in these ways:
Therapy: Stroke patients often experience physical and functional limitations after a stroke illness. Ninkatec provides physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy sessions for patients right at home to aid with improving individual’s functional status and perhaps complement their medical care. Services are not only aimed at a particular condition or disability, but are coordinated to address the total well-being of the individual, and needs of the family and caregiver.
