What to Expect Before, During and After a Stroke

You’ve heard of heart attacks, but how much do you know about strokes? A stroke is a brain attack that happens when loss of blood flow deprives brain cells of the oxygen and nutrients they need. These cells start to die within minutes. This can cause lasting brain damage, long-term disability, or even death. Anyone can have a stroke at any age, but nearly three-quarters of all strokes occur in seniors — people over age 65. Recovery from stroke and a return to normal life are possible, even for strokes in the elderly, but a quick response is vitally important.

Our community is an option before or after a stroke.  At Longhorn Village, a senior living community in Austin, TX., there is an on-site Health Center with compassionate, and exceptional care. Our life care community has everyday assisted living, rehabilitationskilled nursing, & memory care. We encourage independence and preserve dignity with a person-centered approach that meets physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual needs.
