Well, John, you aren't alone. I realize that you asked this question four years ago, however, there may be someone wondering the same thing. There are many companies out there that are non-nursing care that can come in and assist you in caring for your loved one. Home Instead, Comfort Keepers and Interim are just a few. I wish you the best of luck!
I came across this article regarding care of a stroke victim. Hopefully it will give you some good information.

You will need to keep scrolling down if you see an advertisement between the paragraphs, just keep scrolling otherwise you will miss the whole article.
Here is some more information in case the person you are caring has difficulty in talking.
