About this Care Recipient

My dad is 72, and was diagnosed with MDS August 2019. He was admitted to the hospital March 22nd with low hemoglobin, and while there, had a stroke, which evolved. Stroke due to blockage of his carotid, for which he had surgery. He can use his left hand to touch his face and eats with assistance. Right-side is flaccid, cannot sit without assistance (not standing or walking at this point), will be having OT, PT, and speech therapy come to the house. Also has some difficulty with understanding, need to be able to see his reaction to gage whether his response is "correct" (uses 'yes' a lot, does not always mean it). Was healthy as a horse until the stroke March 26th-April 1st.
