    Hi there,
    My moms arm hasn’t moved since the stroke a year and a half ago and her right leg still drags. Are there any options for us to receive at home therapy or what can we do to assi6with the recovery of both her arm and leg.

      I will email you a manual from the University of Stellenbosch, regarding stroke rehab, this could help improve mobility.  As far as recovery period, it is not the same for everyone, in my case, I still managed to recover movement 2 -3 years after my stroke. So I guess the key here is to remain positive, put in the hard yards and the results will occur….never give up. That goes for the survivor and their support team.
