Help with stroke victim decisions

My had a severe stroke during a heart cath procedure in late august 2020 and the left side of her body has no movement.  She is currently home eating and swallowing well talking good, but a lot of crazy talks. I am taking care of her with the help of hospice.  In the past month she has had epsiodes of TIA or siezures they last appromimately 30-45 seconds and she is back to as she was before the epsiode. We have been doing range/motion exercises several times a week here at home

I am not sure how to handle this I have plans to let neurolgist take test and see what is happening. She is bedridden and getting her to the doctors office will be a challenge.  I would like to get her moved to skilled nursing facility for rehab. I will have to cut ties with hospice if I do take her to the doctor. 

Has anyone had a situation like mine.  Any advice will be appreciated.

    Hello,

    I'm so sorry to hear you're going through this, I can't imagine how difficult this must be. It's great to hear she's having no issues with eating and talking and that you have plans to see a neurologist. As you continue to garner advice and insights from others on these forums, I would also encourage you to review these Recovery After Stroke resources. Please keep us updated on how she's doing.

    Best Wishes,

    Hi Louis66,

    Sorry to hear of the incident. If you have to cut ties with the current hospice, is there another one you could utilize later of needed? I imagine talking with a neurologist might give you some good insights as to what is best. Good luck!
