My cousin had a stroke and he's getting out of the hospital tomorrow. I'm not sure how to care for him properly when he comes home. Do you have any suggestions for where I can get help in South San Francisco? Thank you so much!

Thanks for asking! It can definitely be stressful trying to figure out how to care for a loved one after they are discharged from the hospital. And especially when you are dealing with a serious medical condition such as a stroke, you want to be assured that your loved one is getting the best possible care as they rehabilitate. 

Fortunately, there are tons of care communities in the South San Francisco area that offer "respite" programs. Respite programs are short-term stays in a care community, and they offer the chance for your loved one to recover in a safe, supportive environment. 
To find respite programs that fit your needs, just search on by your preferred area, your cousin's care needs, and other amenities that would be helpful to him as he recovers. This way, you can find peace of mind knowing that he's getting the care he needs. And you can even find a place close to home so you can go visit and check on him regularly. Some communities even offer speech therapy, rehabilitation classes, and exercise programs meant for people with cognitive impairment.
