Every situation is different. Is the person unresponsive?
It sounds from your post that this person at end of life. Have you thought of asking hospice to evaluate? Or is the person already hospitalized and recently had a second stroke?
I would talk to the person's doctors to ask what the prognosis is.
No one can predict when a person will pass away but from what you have posted it sounds like the second stroke has caused much brain damage and that they can no longer sustain life.
My mother had her first stroke which effected her in that she could no longer recognize my brother and I. Six weeks or so later she had another and became unresponsive but could breathe on her own. About 3-4 days after the second stroke, she passed away.
