Bowel problems are common after stroke. Some survivors and their families received some training in a rehabilitation setting, but others have not. Many caregivers at home are lacking in knowledge and how to create a plan of care for managing bowel problems of the stroke survivor.
This course will help caregivers or family members caring for a stroke survivor living at home become knowledgeable about bowel problems and how they can best be managed. You will be able to create an effective bowel management plan for the stroke survivor living at home. This course can also benefit individuals who are experiencing bowel incontinence or constipation.
This is a crucial part of a stroke survivor's recovery. Bowel problems, left unresolved, no doubt, will result in anxiety, frustration, and lack of motivation.
Having worked as a beside rehabilitation nurse for 30 years, I testify that strategies, such as bowel retraining, exercise, diet, and medication are helpful in managing bowel problems after stroke. You will find all of this in my course.
