Customer Question

Hi my partners father is currently in hospital after having a stroke. It appears to be his speech that has been affected. After about 5 days he went into a dilerium and has been in it for 5 weeks. How long should these symptoms last? And also what is the likely hood of recovery if it is still not subsiding? What is the likelihood he will get to return home?

Hi. Besides his speech are there any other symptoms following the stroke like limb weakness or balance problems? How long did he have symptoms before he was seen by a doctor?
