Hi Lorne,

After your stroke, things can be patchy, and some things unfortunately will never return back to the way they were.

As the stroke was a number of years ago, I will say that unfortunately it may be that you have lost the ability to remember names.

There is no way to repair one part of the brain, given your age as a factor, and that the actually prognosis of having this done would outweigh the benefits.

I would say, you need to just get on with things, and feel lucky that this was the only permanent feature of the stroke.
