Subject: 'Bal Ex Stroke' specialist anyone?
Date Posted: 31 January 2019 at 10:50am
I'm looking for a physiotherapist who can help my father doing his 'Bal Ex Stroke' exercise. On the advice of a doctor, they recommend my dad doing the exercise around 2 times a week to accelerate the recovery of stroke that he had experienced. Please help me..

nowadays you can search on google how to do the therapy instead of spending money hiring a specialist.

I dont encourage this. There a reason why specialist exist out there. Sure you can search on google on how to the therapist but its still dangerous because you might practice it wrongly which can cause more damage. 
I strongly suggest you to get a specialist. But still, you can find a specialist through the internet though LOL

I think sending him to physiotherapy centres would help him to get in shape. But the question is can you commit twice a week? Sending him to the centre is one thing, but waiting and taking him home.... thats a chunk of working hour spend...

Saw a number of centres around bangsar if you have the time to spend... or another way is to search for a platform that provides physio at home

But in reality its not that easy to find those platform right? Its mostly part time workers without good edu background.

I really don't recommend to assist the patient and done the therapy by our own. The risk is very high and can affect patient's condition..

Well sometimes even if we are not really free but since it is concerning about family's health we just gonna do it also, it is hard to find people who are willing to help us with that.

I think not necessarily need to have a good education background but at least need to have relevant experience in the field, some ppl just assume it is just an easy job taking care of others but in reality it is not.

I dont really trust those articles on the internet nowadays, anyone can post stuff like that online and you dont even know whether the author is really a doctor or not, so better to ask specialist to handle things like this, anything gone wrong could be devastating for our health.

Ever since my mum got diagnosed with kidney problem and had to go to the clinic every week for dialysis my wife got no choice but to quit her job to take care of my mum, can't really afford to hire a personal caretaker for my mum...

How is the rate for this caregiver that you talking about and do they have any minimum period for hire? Because I need someone to take care of my dad for two days only since I am going outstation for work.

I had seen a lot ppl complaining about hiring someone to look after their family members but the caretaker doesn't even know what they are suppose to do, just sit there and chill out for the whole day and wait to collect money only lol.

Actually there are a lot of ppl offering this type of services at Caregiverasia, most of them are freelancers working part time and would gladly take up such offers if it is within their area, you should give it a try if needed.

They usually charge according to hour and the pricetag is reasonable and not too burdensome even for normal families with average income. There are no minimum period required and you just need to inform them beforehand what time to what time you will needing their service.

Well I would say you need both education and experience if you are going to work in such field, thankfully at Caregiverasia all their freelancers are fully equipped in these two aspects so you can be assured that their service quality would be worth every penny that you are spending.
