Care support for stroke, wherever you are
Learn more about stroke and the recovery process. Homage Care Pros can help your loved one recover motor and speech functions while minimising the risk of secondary stroke.
An Introduction to Stroke
A stroke occurs when blood supply to parts of our brain is reduced or interrupted. This deprives our brain tissue of the nutrients and oxygen necessary for its survival. Within minutes, the cells start to die, impeding our brain functions.
To minimise the impact of stroke, being able to spot the early signs of stroke and getting prompt treatment is crucial.
Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability
In Malaysia, stroke is one of the top five leading causes of death after ischemic heart disease, septicemia, malignant neo-plasms, and pneumonia
Up to two-thirds of reported stroke cases in Malaysia were of ischaemic origin, with the remaining one-third being hemorrhagic (intracerebral and subarachnoid hemorrhages).
Caring for a loved one recovering from a stroke
Strokes often strike suddenly and without warning, and the impact on each individual varies depending on the part of the brain affected by the interrupted blood supply and the extent of damage to the brain.
The road to recovery can be tough mentally and physically, especially after losing the ability to speak, eat and/or move about. Having the support of a loved one can be especially important during this time.
Embark on your road to recovery with Homage
We have walked the journey with numerous families and their loved one with stroke. One of the families we supported is Madam Chua and her daughter PG Lim.
When Madam Chua suffered a stroke and then a fall, her daughter PG took a year off work to help her recover and managed to balance work and caring for her mother with assistance from Homage.

Top questions about Stroke
Does stroke shorten life expectancy?
Studies have shown that even minor strokes may reduce our life expectancy.
How do you care for a stroke patient?
There are many ways we can support a loved one recovering from a stroke. From educating ourselves and managing finances, to making home modifications and supporting with daily activities, being a family caregiver to someone recovering from stroke is no mean feat.
Sometimes, seeking professional care support can be beneficial, not only for the caregiver but also for the care recipient to receive quality care. Learn more about how you can support a loved one post-stroke here.
Can a stroke patient make a full recovery?
Post-stroke recovery differs for everyone. While some may be able to recover fully, others may have long-term or lifelong disabilities. Recovery time may also vary from weeks, months to even years.
What does stroke rehabilitation involve?
Stroke rehabilitation aims to help us relearn skills that may have been lost. Depending on the type of stroke and the extent of damange to our brain, different forms of therapy may be required.
For those with mobility issues, physiotherapy may be required. If speech, language or swallowing abilities are affected, speech therapy can help. For those who need to re-learn how to perform everyday activities, an occupational therapist can help.

What our customers sayView all reviews
The team has been sublime to work with albeit having to temporarily halt engaging them for care services due to the pandemic situation now in Malaysia. All teething issues in the initial phase of engagement were swiftly addressed and satisfactorily so. Special shoutout to Shirley from Homage who has been responding promptly to all my queries and requests (and went far and beyond my expectations with her actions in all counts).
My father had a fall recently and sustained a hip fracture. Living overseas and not being able to travel back home to assist with recovery was very worrying. A friend recommended Homage to help with his nursing care. They are prompt in replying to messages. The care provided was excellent and highly professional. We have been very pleased with the service. There are times when we had to change the appointment time and they obliged and looked into our needs.
Our experience has been very positive. So far, we have used their Care Pros perhaps 10 times (for checking in on mum) and she has been nothing short of kind and supportive. The coordinator Bel has also been a great help since day one. I find the price to be reasonable. Love the reporting feature on their app. You could see what has been done during the visit. It’s worth trying out.
My 85-year-old mother, who underwent post-ventral incisional hernia surgery in January 2019 had CPs from Homage, all professionally trained, from leading Malaysian hospitals. The CPs nursed my mother with diligence, and compassion; providing invaluable tips on elderly caregiving to family members. My gratitude and appreciation to Team Homage.
I had positive experiences with Homage so far. They are flexible, affordable, and professional. The coordinator from Homage has been very helpful and accommodating to my request since day one. Caregivers assigned to take care of my grandmother are punctual, professionally trained and attentive. Hope they will continue to serve well.
Homage has helped us a lot in assisting the recovery of our beloved father. They provide us with a comprehensive explanation regarding the physiotherapy program. The therapist they sent is highly qualified, courteous, passionate, and gave outstanding service. And above all, the charges are fair and affordable.
Thank you Homage for your assistance after my mom was discharged from the hospital due to dengue fever. Mom regained her confidence to take her first shower after discharge with the help of Homage's caregiver, something my domestic helper will not be able to do. Also to guide my domestic helper to handle her in a more hygienic way. My maid learned the proper method and able to give better care to mom now. Highly recommend it to people who looking for professional care services to manage family members who need help.
It's really hassle-free when u can have the COVID-19 swab test without leaving ur home. The response is really fast, the app is efficient. Thank you for your services.
I want to thank Homage for their excellent service especially Ms. Ginger for her brilliant communication and customer service and for making the necessary arrangements. She does a good follow-up before and after the physio, also accurate feed-back. We appreciate Ms. Shu for her excellent physio service which made my mother gain confidence that she can walk again. Ms. Shu is very patient, hard-working, and committed to seeing my mum will be completely restored and healed. Thank you.
