Kids are a great way to help older people become more active (e.g. It's difficult at the moment as not only having to deal with everything that has happened I'm having to deal with his partner who is confusing him more by saying things like you will be out of hospital in a few days and talking about other stresses around him. Hi, I hope someone can help or confirm that what I think could be true.
throwing a ball with the kids, going shopping with them, coming to watch their sporting events, etc.) If she doesn't have enough stamina to go out in the community then choose something easier at home. His ears still work and this is stuff he doesn't need to hear. Tricia I'm having a real hard time since the stroke. My brother and his wife have been apart and now divorced for 3 or 4yrs now. On several occasions she has made allegations that ex boyfriends have abused her or stalked her.
If the kids come up and ask her to do something, she may be more apt to say yes. Nothings been said yet but I'm going to have to talk with her as i can't take much more. I don't have use of my left side, and I hate not being able to walk correctly. Recently she has now made allegations that my brother has abused her physically, mentally, stalked her etc. Obviously it has become a very serious issue now and there is also a child that lives with her so not sure where to go from here. My very close friend and on and off boyfriend but always very close throughout had a heart attack and serious stroke.
I assume you have probably talked to her about her personality changes, but if you haven't, then sit down and have a heart to heart discussion when she is in a good/receptive mood. I have done it alone and now at the end of my tether. I know were all stressed and it's effected us all but he still has his own mind and I don't want him getting stressed out. He is almost fully recovered physically although still has some pain and numbness on left side. I'm now wondering if these delusions are an effect from previous strokes? He is 59, a lawyer and comes from a big loving family.
They ran tests and all that and said he didn't have a stroke and sent him to his doctor who also wouldn't take him so my mom took him home. The stroke got progressively worse and the first hospital wasted all of our time to get a shot to stop the stroke from progressing. His whole demeanor has changed like from night to day. I don't want to upset him, his family or me and even if I wanted to visit I've been banned.
My dad got worse and so my mom called he ambulance again and he was taken to a different hospital, which said he did have a stroke. What could make him act this way...latest thought I had that maybe he is stuck in a place where he just feels comfortable with his immediate family and friends and is kind of stuck in the past yet certain memories about me irritate him.... I have googled this and can't find anyone stating they have experienced this and would love to know if anyone here has....
Yelled at me and told me that she's the parent and can do what she wants and I'm the child. Then she went in to my dad and said I'm tired of you putting them above me. I have my older sister who I talk to sometimes but not about everything because I feel like I'm being ridiculous or ungrateful, I'm grateful to still have my dad with us obviously, its just hard because we don't know if he will be able to work again and my life could be very different from now on and that's just hard to deal with a little. Plus, I don't have the best relationship with my mom. My mom can just be over the top sometimes and it just adds way more stress. He thinks I'm cheating on him with a young man (we're both in our 60's) who he thinks I allow to use our home when we're not there, using his shower and his soaps. I can't leave him, even though I want to because I'm so miserable, but he can't take care of himself what do I do?

Many people who have strokes want to maintain control of their own lives and may not respond well to being told what to do. He has lost feeling and movement in his left side and is struggling with his eye sight and swallowing.
Maybe you could include her in activities that would allow her to be more active without making it obvious that is what you are doing. The doctors have confirmed he has brain damage I think he is suffering with short term memory loss too.
I also would take him to a neuropsychologist or neuropsychiatrist who deals in emotional/cognitive issues of people who have experienced neurological injury.
You definitely need some expert help in managing his behavior.
