Not sure what you are asking without a little more detail.

Here in my town I know of an older man who tried to take his life after a stroke left him partially parallelized.

Once he was medically stable he was placed into a nursing home. Now, it probably helped that he has some damage from the stroke that leaves him weak on one side and speech is affected a lot. Initially he was taking therapy for the stroke, but quit after about 6 weeks.

He is still in the nursing home though and it looks to be a permanent placement. The wife was incredibly nervous about bringing him home, and the responsibility to be on "suicide watch" all the time (his attempt came within half an hour of returning home after 2 months of hospitalization and rehab from the stroke, she feels guilt.) So the nursing home is the best for all parties. As far as I know, the nursing home has no problem with him as a patient and they are aware of the attempt.
