I don't see a stroke section on this site, so I'm asking here. My 83 year old mother, who lives alone, had a stroke last week. She was transferred from the hospital to a sub-acute rehab place, where she will likely be for 30 days. She cannot move her left arm (and she is left handed), her short-term memory is shot, and she only has some control of her left leg.
I know every stroke patient recovers differently, but I'm wondering how likely it is that she will regain control of her left arm. Her long term memory is fine, but her "affect" is very flat and not like her usual self. Can that be regained?
Finally, after rehab I expect she will need 24/7 care. Not even sure where to begin there.
