I am director of an agency in California serving the elderly and disableed and the wife of a young Stroke Victim (he was 37 at the time.) It would help me to respond if you could tell me about the person you are seeking help for. Strokes can cause paralysis, or not; to lose verbal skills, or not; the ability to reason, or not... you get my point.

In general I would say to ask for a "neuropsycholical evalution" by a trained specialist right away. Your primary care doctor or treating neurolgist will likely have to help you justify the assessment, but particularly if the patient is young and/or still very active prior to the stroke, it is important and worth the fight. If you tell me where you are located, I can help you find someone. I would also recommend Physical, Occupational and Speech therapy for as long as you can get it. There are programs across the world that specialize in stroke rehabilitation. One that I am impressed with is the Stroke Rehabilitation Center in Palm Springs California. But there are many and the important key is to match the patient to the program.
