what are the chances of recovering from a stroke?

Question by princessxsparkle03: what are the chances of recovering from a stroke?
my grandmother had a stroke a few months back in late february and still is not doing too well. she has been back and forth with hospitals, nursing homes, and rehab centers. one side of her body is still paralyzed, and she has been having bad days on and off lately. She’s not really able to do anything for herself, but i was just wondering if there’s a possibility she might get well enough to go home?

Honey, there’s a lot of variables. Age, sex, severity of the stroke, what was affected, other health problems they have, etc. etc. etc.

    At this point in her recovery, she could recover some of the use of the side that’s paralyzed, but she will never be 100% like she was before the stroke. Sadly enough, it sounds like she had a significant stroke. I doubt that she will ever be able to live at home alone again. Even if she does come home, she will need to have someone to care for her 24/7. That’s the nature of the beast to have good days and bad ones.

    Age also plays a part in her recovery. The older she is, the more problems she can have. Hoepfully you can find a good rehab center that specializes in the recover of stroke pts, not someplace that just comes in and turns her and doesn’t really work with her.

    Good luck
