Fall Prevention & Stability Monitoring

Our professional caregivers can help to monitor your ambulation to ensure the latest best practices in fall prevention are adhered to. Stability monitoring is critical for stroke patients, and our caregivers can help you remain safe in your own home, wherever home may be. Close supervision by a caregiver can make a substantial impact in managing your condition.

Improve safety even when a caregiver isn’t around. We have partnered with Phillips Lifeline to provide remote monitoring. Receive FREE activation and shipping from Phillips with promo code “FamilyTree.”

Managing Aphasia

Over 2 million Americans suffer from Aphasia, an acquired communication disorder that impairs a person’s ability to process language (but does not affect intelligence). Our professional caregivers are trained and experienced in modifying communication to ease the burdens of Aphasia.

Regular Reinforcement of Physician’s Plan of Care

Our professional caregivers can help you manage the plan of care set up by your physician. Home health may come in for a period of time for intermittent visits, and Family Tree can fill in all the gaps between doctor visits and home health visits to ensure the plan of care is adhered to, including medication management, therapy reinforcement, and safety engagement.

Family Tree was formed after our founders experienced personal tragedy associated in their families from Alzherimer’s and a hemorrhagic stroke.

  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States.
  • One person dies every 36 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease.
  • About 659,000 people in the United States die from heart disease each year—that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.
  • Heart disease costs the United States about $363 billion each year from 2016 to 2017. This includes the cost of health care services, medicines, and lost productivity due to death.
According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. The term “heart disease” refers to several types of heart conditions. In the United States, the most common type of heart disease is coronary artery disease (CAD), which can lead to heart attack. You can greatly reduce your risk for heart disease through lifestyle changes and, in some cases, medicine. Caring for a stroke survivor impacts whole families. Coping with this chronic condition requires boundless quantities of patience, empathy and love. Professional caregiving provides individualized care for your loved one and gives you back some time to recharge. 

Our specially trained Stroke Survivor caregivers offer an expanded array of services to your loved one:

  • Encouragement to do as much as they can on their own
  • Personal care assistance, such as toileting, bathing and grooming
  • Mental  & physical stimulation through conversation and other activities

We’ve cared for thousands of families, including our own, and know that it can be overwhelming to care for a loved one. 

Let our team of experts make it easier for you.

The aid that took care of our parent was wonderful. Not only did she provide physical care, but she was also a trusted companion.
