My mum aged 59 years old and she suffered a stroke at the beginning of May 2010.
She has just moved to a Rehab unit in England where we live under the NHS not private.
Although its only been about 3 weeks since the stroke i am concered she is not getting the rehab she needs after moving to the unit this week.
When she first had the stroke she was without any voice or sounds apart from coughing sound. No strength in her right arm or leg.
She is now being more postive and every day says more words, she has been diagnosed with dyspraxia. She has a little feeling in her right leg and she can nearly lift it herself but obviously doesnt put any weight on it so things are postive. Although the right arm has no movement.
She is making progress and is being postive, but at this stage what should a structured rehab programme look like? How many times a week should she have a physio session? I am concerned she is not getting what she needs at the early stage and i need some advice if anyone can help.
